Like In Venice?

Posted on April 12, 2012 by team

It’s Alatyr. Three different rivers unite in one stream in spring what often causes such a big flood. The average upwelling level is 6 m 85 cm, today it is 7 m 40 cm. Though the water is still rising, the record of 1926 – 9 m will hardly be beaten. About 4,5 km2 of the city has sunk under water. Luckily there are no victims but 3 000 people are in the flooded zone.

Locals have no panic, they are always ready for such situations, they lift cattle and transport on scaffolding.

    It’s becoming flood time in Finland, too. I don’t remember all the areas affected, but when all the snow finalllllly melts, waterways will start to rise and sometimes make trouble.

    7 meters is a lot of water. I am sure it floods every year, so, no one is surprised. Very good bottom land.
