Hundreds of houses, plots flooded in Russia's Kurgan region

16/4/2024 13:05
        Water levels in rivers in swathes of Russia's Ural and southwestern Siberian regions continued to rise rapidly, officials said on Tuesday, flooding hundreds of houses, cutting off power and forcing urgent evacuations of residents.
        
        More than 300 houses and nearly 700 residential plots have been flooded in Russia's Kurgan region straddling the Tobol River near the border with Kazakhstan, Russia's emergency ministry said on Tuesday.
        
        "The water level in the Tobol River is rising rapidly," the ministry said on the Telegram messaging app.
        
        In the city of Kurgan, the region's administrative centre, power was cut off, affecting about 1,500 residents, local officials said late on Monday.
        
        Vadim Shumkov, governor of the Kurgan region, had said that he expected a "very difficult" situation, with the waters in the Tobol rising possibly up to 11 meters, or nearly double the bursting level at some places.
