MOSCOW, September 7. /TASS/. Servicemen from the Russian Pacific Fleet are helping residents of the Krounovka settlement in the Russian Far East that was hit by floods after Typhoon Lionrock, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.
"In the Primorsky Krai, servicemen from the Pacific Fleet are rendering assistance to the population of the Krounovka settlement, in 70 kilometers to the north-west of Vladivostok, that suffered from floods caused by Typhoon Lionrock. A total of 299 people were transported over the last 24 hours (1,243 in total), along with nine units of civilian equipment (31 in total). A total of 2.9 tonnes of bottled water (16.7 tonnes in total) and 7.1 tonnes (46.1 tonnes in total) of food were delivered," the Defense Ministry said.
A filtration station has been set up to provide additional supplies of drinking water. The station is capable of producing 25 cubic meters of water daily.
"As of 6am on September 7, the sanitary-epidemiological situation in Primorsky Krai’s districts is assessed as satisfactory. There are no animal burial grounds and hazardous chemical facilities in the flooded areas. Cooperation was organized with local departments of Rospotrebnadzor (consumer rights watchdog) and Centers for Hygiene and Epidemiology," the ministry added.
Typhoon Lionrock hit the Russian Far East after the powerful cyclone brought heavy rains on August 29-31. The state of emergency was declared in the region. Over 3,600 houses in 13 municipalities were flooded in the Primorsky Krai.
