Evacuation of one hundred thousand people in Russia and Kazakhstan after an unprecedented flood

Devastating floods in Russia and Kazakhstan led to evacuation orders for residential areas.

Kazakhstan and Russia witnessed their worst floods in 70 years.

According to the Reuters news agency, due to the rapid melting of snow and overflowing rivers, the authorities of Astana and Moscow asked 100,000 residents of the flooded areas to leave their homes and take shelter in safe areas. .

The evacuation order comes after warmer weather intensified snowmelt in the Ural Mountains, the Siberian region, and parts of Kazakhstan near the Ural and Tobul rivers. The same issue raised the water level of the rivers by several meters in a few hours and reached a new record.

The Ural River is the third longest river in the European continent, which flows into the Caspian Sea after passing through Russia and Kazakhstan. However, the city of Orsk, south of the Ural Mountains, was submerged on Friday after the river burst its banks and broke an earthen dam.

Downstream of the river, the city of Orenburg, which has a population of half a million people, is in imminent danger of flooding.

Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman of the Kremlin Palace, pointed to the current difficult situation and the possibility of the flood intensifying, and stressed: difficult days are ahead. There is a lot of water coming in right now. We are looking to manage the crisis and reduce the consequences of this flood.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation with his Kazakh counterpart. Now Kazakhstan has ordered the evacuation of 86 thousand people and insists that this flood is unprecedented in the country in the last 80 years.
