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.
