Eyewitnesses share pictures of the sinking Primorye on social networks
The powerful typhoon “Khanun”, which hit Primorye, demolished bridges and destroyed roads with streams of water. Of course, this is not last year’s Hinnamnor, but the consequences this time are also not small.
Due to heavy rains, district and regional roads were blocked in the region, and temporary accommodation centers for residents were opened in several districts. There is no passage between Ussuriysk and Khorol, towards Galenki, Poltavka, Khasan is cut off. The main precipitation fell yesterday afternoon, and tonight the blow fell on the west of the region. The rains continue and will continue tomorrow.
According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Primorye, the largest amount fell in Chernigov, Chuguevsky, Khasansky, Olginsky, Yakovlevsky, Oktyabrsky, Lazovsky, municipal districts, Ussuriysk and Nakhodka and adjacent territories, as well as in the Mikhailovsky district.
Rescuers organized boat crossings, every hour they pump out water in the flooded areas.
Today the checkpoint in Poltavka was closed. The road was washed out because of the rain.
It was not sweet for the inhabitants of Ussuriysk. After heavy rains, the roads in the city turned into rivers, and the squares into lakes. More than 111 millimeters of rain fell in the area. The state of emergency has been introduced. Operational services have been put on high alert.
While Ussuriysk is fleeing the flood, the Khorolsky district of Primorye is drowning. A section of the road was washed out. Eyewitnesses report that there is no passage. The video shows how a crack formed and a rapid stream of water flows into a deep crevice.
Tragic news came from the same area in the afternoon – emergency services received a message about the disappearance of two minors – 10 and 12 years old. Presumably, the children died when they were washed away by the stream into the culvert – the details are being clarified, writes Newsvl.
In social networks, many post photos and videos from the beaches, showing the wind and big waves. Tourists say that it demolishes tents.
Meanwhile, in Vladivostok, a gap formed near the city traffic police at the intersection of Fontannaya and Border. Workers cleared up the aftermath.
All this puts quite a lot of pressure on the nerves and many are in a panic. Someone worries about their broken car, someone saves the harvest. And some find their positive in the elements. So, in the midst of the elements, a girl in a revealing bathing suit arranged a photo session at the crossroads of two main roads of Vladivostok. She sat down on a blanket during the active movement of the car and posed for the photographer.
Others have found a way to get away with it. Today in the colony of Ussuriysk the territory was flooded – the guards decided to harness the prisoner to the team, one of the subscribers of the telegram channel reported.
Two thrill-seekers went for a ride along a flooded track in Primorye. However, luck was not on their side. Sure enough, the bikers’ vehicle was swept away by the current.
Meanwhile, the servicemen of the 5th Army, as well as the rescuers, rush to help. The head of the Chernihiv district, Kirill Khyzhinsky, together with the fighters, using special equipment, punched a trench for the water to drain.
The shelter for stray dogs in the village of Novonikolsk near Ussuriysk also suffered. Flooding could kill more than 700 dogs here. Quadrupeds bark piercingly and climb onto the booths. Volunteers sound the alarm.
Residents of the region decided to create a chatbot to help flood victims. All information will be promptly transferred to the work of the heads of municipalities and the regional Ministry of Civil Defense and Emergencies. Using the chatbot is easy. Enough to go link.
What is known for the evening? According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Primorye, on August 12, the rise of water on the Razdolnaya River near the village of Terekhovka in the Nadezhdinsky District will continue. The Ilistaya River near the village of Khalkidon in the Chernihiv region will also suffer. Will drown sections of roads, lowlands, farmland and bridges.
The cyclone will leave, but the respite from this misfortune will not be long. Primorye is threatened by a new typhoon LAN. According to weather forecasts, by August 15 it will approach the coast of Japan and touch Primorye.
