BARNAUL, June 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Water levels have decreased by 65 centimeters in the city of Biisk, Altai region, where about 900 houses have been partially flooded, the press service of the city administration said on Monday.

At the present time, water stands at the level of 6.47 meters, while on Sunday it stood at 7.12 meters, the press service said, noting that water levels kept subsiding. According to eye witnesses, house number plates are emerging from under the water in some areas, but it will take long before the water fully retreats. A total of 3,572 people found themselves in the zone of flooding, and 1,631 of them have been evacuated.

Rescuers remained on duty on the dam throughout the night. “Yes, the water levels decrease, but nature is unpredictable, and it is not yet time to relax,” the Biisk administration said.
