ST. PETERSBURG, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Strong western winds stirred up a water rise on Neva River. The water level at the Mining Institute, which is a control point of the St. Petersburg weather forecasting service, has made 98 cm at 10:00 local time (6:00 a.m. GMT) on Sunday. The water level is 110 cm at the port of Kronshtadt on the outer side of the St. Petersburg dam with the critical level of 160 cm.
