Russia and Kazakhstan are experiencing “worst floods in decades”

  • Due to floods brought on by melting snow, people had to be evacuated from ten northern regions of Kazakhstan.
  • Nearly 4,500 people have been evacuated from the Orenburg region by Russian officials.
  • Over the next three days, the water level on the Ural River in Orenburg will rise to unsafe levels.

Due to floods brought on by melting snow, tens of thousands of people had to be evacuated from ten northern regions of Kazakhstan. The floods in Orsk, 1,800 km southeast of Moscow, have forced the closure of an oil refinery.

Water levels in some places are rising more quickly than they have in the previous 100 years, the Kremlin has warned. Nearly 4,500 people have been evacuated from the Orenburg region by Russian officials.

Flood in Russia

Following a dam rupture on Friday, Russian Minister of Emergency Situations Alexander Kurenkov issued a warning, stating that a serious situation had emerged.

Over the next three days, the water level on the Ural River in Orenburg will rise to unsafe levels. After April 20, regional authorities anticipate that the water will “peak” on Tuesday and that things will normalize.

In Kazakhstan, around 60,000 agricultural animals have been relocated to safe zones by rescuers, while 12,000 people are staying in makeshift shelters. According to President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, the floods were the worst natural calamity to affect Kazakhstan in the previous eight decades.
