Floods in Russia's Far East prompt massive evacuations

Mass evacuation will start in the city of Khabarovsk, in Russia's Far East, in case the water level in the Amur river rises to 780 centimeters.

According to mayor Alexander Sokolov it will be impossible not to evacuate the population of the city if the water rises to the above-mentioned level.

Currently, the water level in the Amur reached 688 centimeters. Should the water rise by one more meter, several vital municipal objects in urban lowlands will be flooded.

Evacuation has been launched in the villages of Krasnaya Rechka and Ussurisky on the outskirts of Khabarovsk. About a hundred people refused to leave their homes. In Khabarovsk, nearly 300 buildings have been flooded, including 14 apartment buildings. Almost ten kilometers of protective dikes have been built in the city to combat flooding.

 

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
