Today in mass-media the information about "natural cycles" is often accompanied by epithets "abnormal", "earlier not observed", "catastrophic" etc. This article is about problems directly connected with climatic changes.
In the north of Yakutia there is a village Andryushkino. During the last decade catastrophic floods are observed there. And not only in spring but also in autumn! From high waters suffers not only Andryushkino. In 2008 the decision on complex studying of the reasons for the change in hydrological mode of the Alazei River and for finding-out the reasons for the problem was accepted. On March, 4-th, 2008 in order to solve this sharp social and economic problem the "Alazeja-2008" complex research expedition was organized.
