BARNAUL, June 15, /ITAR-TASS/. Up to six more settlements may be affected by a severe flooding in Russia’s Siberian Altai region where torrential rain raised the water level in local rivers, Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations’ (EMERCOM) chief military expert Eduard Chizhikov told Tass on Sunday.
“Under the worst scenario, up to six settlements in two municipalities of the Altai region, the Kamen and Krutikhina districts, may get into the zone of partial flooding on June 15,” he said. According to the expert, 24 settlements remain partially flooded in the Altai region. “These are more than 1,200 private houses in which more than 4,400 people live,” he said.
Meanwhile, repair work continues in the flood-hit areas. “More than 4,000 private land plots have been cleared of mud and garbage, and water has been pumped out of almost 6,000 houses. A total of 45 kilometers of roads have been cleared and more than 16 cubic meters of garbage have been removed,” Chizhikov added. Almost 5,000 EMERCOM specialists assisted by about 400 units of hardware take part in work to deal with the aftermath of the flooding.
All in all, more than 100 mobile repair teams have been formed in the south of Siberia. A buildup in material and human resources continues in the region. Spring floods in southern Siberia have affected four regions - the Altai region, the republics of Khakassia, Tuva and Altai. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered on Wednesdaythe allocation of up to 3.75 billion roubles to the flood-hit Siberian regions.
