VLADIVOSTOK, November 9 (Itar-Tass) - The Amur River is still higher than the zero level, but no houses are flooded in the Far East, the Russian Emergencies Ministry's Far Eastern regional centre said on Saturday.
At 08:00 local time (01:00 Moscow time) on Saturday, the water was at the level of 77 cm in Khabarovsk, nine cm down over the past day, 105 cm in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, one cm down, and 144 cm in Nikolayevsk-on-Amur (six cm up).
For the present, 2,194 people, including 563 children, still remain at 49 stations for evacuees. Their homes are seriously damaged or destroyed by the Amur flood, the worst in 100 years.
Work to repair damaged roads and buildings is continuing in the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomous Region and the Khabarovsk Territory, where 23 road sections and 30 bridges are damaged.
More than 17,000 people continue working in the Far Eastern region, dealing with flood consequences.
