PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 20 (Itar-Tass) - A state of emergency is imposed in the Sobolevo district in the Kamchatka Territory because of a flood on the Bolshaya Vorovskaya River, the regional government's press service said on Friday.
According to the region's authorities, in the flooded zone in the district centre of Sobolevo are more than 100 houses of about 400 residents and social facilities. The local school and the kindergarten are closed.
People are temporarily accommodated at two stations specially prepared for them, but most people refuse to leave their homes, said Sergei Khabarov, regional minister for special programs and affairs of Cossacks.
Sobolevo is inundated by ground waters.
The only road along the Sobolevo-Petropavlovsk gas pipeline is closed. The flood has damaged bridges across the rivers Kikhchik, Kol, Vorovskaya and Kikhta, the regional government press service said.
As the ground transport link is closed, additional flights of an L-410 plane are provided for passengers.
A regional government group of specialists headed by Governor Vladimir Ilyukhin has flown out for the area to assess the situation.
