VLADIVOSTOK, September 1 (Itar-Tass) - The Amur on Sunday reached the level of 792 cm near Khabarovsk, where 638 houses are flooded.
The river may rise to eight metres on September 2 and 8,3 m by September 5, the Khabarovsk administration press service said.
City Mayor Alexander Sokolov has set a priority task to evacuate people from the flooded buildings. He instructed his subordinates to go to each flat in the buildings at the streets where the situation was particularly tense and find out whether there were helpless people and explain to all residents how serious and dangerous the situation was.
“Khabarovsk residents should realize the scope of the unprecedented flood, understand and be ready for evacuation,” the city head said at the meeting of the commission on emergencies.
At present, 108 people (including 19 children) stay at stations for evacuees in Khabarovsk. The stations are ready to admit 2,500 people.
Sokolov also asked to find out the exact number of people remaining in the settlement of Ussuriisky on flooded Bolshoi Ussuriisky Island within Khabarovsk's Industrial district. About 400 people live in the settlement. According to the updated information, 80 locals and 22 summer house residents remain on the island.
The mayor also ordered the headquarters of the commission on emergencies to organize round-the-clock duty in the flood-stricken areas.
