VLADIVOSTOK, September 8 (Itar-Tass) - The water level in the Amur River near the city of Komsomolsk-on Amur in the Far East has risen by 11 centimeters to 882 centimeters at 8:00 in the morning local time (01:00 Moscow time) on Sunday.
Almost 600 housing dwellings with a population of over 5,000 people, including 1,252 children, have been under-flooded, according to the Russian Emergencies Ministry department for the Khabarovsk territory.
A total of 1,285 people have been evacuated from the flood-affected areas. Five temporary accommodation centers have been set up for the evacuees. Two Emergencies Ministry planes are waiting at Komsomolsk-on-Amur airport ready to start mass evacuation if necessary.

“The situation in Komsomolsk-on-Amur is complicated but it is under control,” the Emergencies Ministry said.
