VLADIVOSTOK, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - As of 08:00, local time (01:00 MSK), the water level in the Amur River near Khabarovsk reached 802 cm, plus another 5 cm in a day, the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry’s (EMERCOM) main department in Khabarovsk Krai reported.
According to forecasts, the maximum water level in the Amur River near Khabarovsk will reach 830 cm. The flood peak is expected within the next 3-4 days.
According to the Khabarovsk Krai government, on Monday, the flood peak was observed near the Nizhneleninskoye settlement in the Jewish Autonomous Region. On September 2, a 6-cm water level decline was registered there after many days of water rise. “Nizhneleninskoye is the nearest point in the Jewish autonomy, on which we predict the movement of the flood crest towards Khabarovsk Krai,” deputy head of the regional government Andrei Volokzhanin said, emphasising that “the city’s community facilities are ready for any unforeseen situations.”
The greatest water rise is currently observed in the area of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where the Amur River level is increasing by 17-20 cm daily. According to the forecast, by September 11-15 it may reach 930-980 cm.
