The biggest floods to hit Russia and Kazakhstan

  • Orenburg, a city in Russia, has been impacted by rising water levels.
  • Residents of Orenburg said they were forced to evacuate with their kids, dogs, and some personal items.
  • The water levels in Tomsk and Kurgan, Siberia, are also rising.

Since major rivers in Kazakhstan and Russia burst their banks and caused the worst flooding in almost a century, Orenburg, a city in Russia, has been impacted by rising water levels.

In the Ural Mountains of Russia, Siberia, and Kazakhstan, more than 110,000 people have been forced to flee their homes. Rising water levels are a result of the overflowing Ural River, which flows through Kazakhstan and into the Caspian Sea.

Worst flooding

Residents of Orenburg said they were forced to evacuate with their kids, dogs, and some personal items when the Ural swelled above its breaking point.

Along with southern portions of Western Siberia and some areas close to the Volga River, the flooding has also devastated northern Kazakhstan and the Russian Urals.

Additionally, the water levels in Tomsk and Kurgan, Siberia, are rising. After the Ural broke through the dam embankments in Orsk, some locals demanded more compensation and begged President Vladimir Putin for assistance, expressing their displeasure with the way local officials handled the matter.

Putin is not planning to visit the area as emergency services deal with rising waters, according to the Kremlin, which has stated that Putin is routinely updated on the situation.
