Heavy floods continue in Siberia, water above its critical point

Devastating floods hit Russia’s Irkutsk region again as the water level in local rivers has risen by over a meter. The administration of Tulun, the town in Irkutsk region almost destroyed by the first wave of floods this June, said the water in the local Iya river has already risen by 1101 cm and they expect the situation to worsen in the next few days. Russian Emergencies’ Ministry rescuers arrived to Tulun with boxes of bread and water cans to supply the local citizens with essentials. The emergency officials say 20 towns and villages in the Irkutsk region were affected by the new wave of floods already.
