MOSCOW, June 08 /ITAR-TASS/. In Russia’s Altai territory remain flooded 15 settlements, where 4,300 people live, spokesman of the emergency situations ministry (EMERCOM) Alexander Drobyshevsky said on Sunday.
“After the flood, in the Altai territory remain in the water 15 settlements of over 1,600 houses, where over 4,300 people live,” he said. “Over 2,000 yards are covered with water.”
He continued saying that over one day the water level in the Ob River had raised by another 24 centimetres, thus still threatening further floods in the districts close to Barnaul.
“In the Ilyich settlement, water flowed over the dam at the width of 15 metres thus having flooded 40 houses there,” Drobyshevsky said.
In Siberia’s other regions no settlements or yards are covered by water any longer.
