The Amur level in Khabarovsk is growing rapidly
The risk of recurrence of destructive floods, whichIn the summer of 2013 he did a lot of trouble in the Far East, is not excluded. The level of the Cupid today is somewhat higher than normal. Much depends on the summer rains. EMERCOM employees are doing everything necessary to ensure that the disaster does not happen again.
Game of nature
Cupid in translation from local Tungus-Manchurianlanguages means "the river of the black dragon." The legend says that there lived in her a kind of black snake, which was the personification of good. He defeated the white dragon (evil). He turned over the fishermen's boats, did not give a good catch. Whatever it was, but, apparently, this villain from time to time makes itself felt and today, in his own way "muddy the water."
Water, water all around
As you know, without water there is no life. But when there is a lot of it, it poses a threat to humanity.
August, 2013 year. Abundant downpours, which went on continuously, led to an unprecedented flood of the mighty river. In the Jewish, Amur regions, as well as in the Khabarovsk Territory, 185 towns and villages stood in water. More than 9 thousand houses, as well as 13 thousand homestead lands and 4 thousand dachas. Plus 374 buildings of the social sphere.
Under water, 611 km of motorways and 600 thousand hectares of fields with sprouting crops hid. The voyage on the ships of passengers along the river was stopped.
The level of the Amur Khabarovsk was such that it was impossible to walk along the streets, neither on foot, nor on transport. The same situation was in Blagoveshchensk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur and other cities.
The left-bank islets also covered with water. Affected livestock home and agricultural. And wild animals even swam across the river. Otherwise there was no escape.
This was not 120 years old
If the level of the Amur in Khabarovsk, for example, on August 18, 2013 was higher than the absolute maximum of 1913 by 642 cm, then a week later it became 736 cm.
Rescuers MOE along with volunteers erecteddams, other protective structures. Yes, unless you restrain a powerful stream! Especially since the water came just swiftly. September 4, 2013 rose to 808 cm. The city steadily went under the water. This flood has not happened here for 120 years! Only on September 5 the elements began to recede.
And what about the water level of 912 cm? This was on September 12, 2013 near Komsomolsk. And this despite the fact that an unfavorable indicator is 600 cm, and dangerous - 650 cm. It is clear why people were in a panic. In the flood zone, there were already more than 820 houses with 10 thousand inhabitants.
On September 13, the water slept a little, but not for long. Stubborn Amur-father continued to be capricious. His water seemed frozen for a few days at around 908 cm. And then the curve of indicators again crawled up. People began to evacuate, because the flooded areas quickly ended food and drinking water.
So the village of Svechino in the Khabarovsk Territory has becomeisland. The roads are blurred, movement is possible only on boats. And if in the Komsomolsk-on-Amur region, for example, about 3,000 people went to temporary accommodation centers (sanatoria, military campuses or hostels), many refused to do so. Almost in every farm - pigs, chickens, cows. You can not take them with you and you will not leave them to perish.
There was no choice for those whose houses were completely destroyed. In the Amur region, for example, 6,000 people counted such people.
Rescuers from Moscow, Chita, Novosibirsk, Kamchatka, Primorye, and Magadan came to the aid of local experts of the Russian Emergencies Ministry and builders.
