20 When the Whole Life Just Floats Away

When the Whole Life Just Floats Away

Posted on July 8, 2012 by team

The Krasnodar region is suffering the utterly devastating flood: more than 12 thousand of people suffered, about 150 – died. People keep shooting the terrible situation: corpses of people and pets are lying right in the streets, rescue workers come and just leave them there.

During the heavy showers in Kuban they started up autodrains in Neberdzhaevsky reservoir that lasted for 13 hours but this circumestance is still not officially confirmed as the main reason of the flood. The autodrains were portional, the dam itself is not damaged.

Krymsk suffered more than other areas.

The authorities affirm that everything is “under control”.

    “(The authorities affirm that everything is “under control”)”. I hope the true cause of this incident isn’t swept under the rug. Very Sad.

  3. Mercal says:

    What is status of country flooding now?

  4. geoff says:

    Life can be so cruel.

    That will take a long time to get over, even after the mess is cleared away. My town was flooded. It is really horrible.

  5. Like a Russian 2005 hurricane Katrina situation.

      New Orleans has hurricanes very often. The fact that most of it is below sea level is well known. You can prepare for hurricanes, but not freak flash floods.

    Putin wants to open an enquiry. I’ll tell Mr Putin what happened – All the money your country is making from oil, you and your cronies are pocketing it. If you spent a little of that money on infrastructure and shoring up flood defences, this would not have happened. There, I hope that helped, now go buy another $30,000 watch to get over it.

    • boson says:

      This was not the fault of infrastructure or money, unless you think rubles or dollars are absorbent enough to handle so much water.

      New submarines, Bulava missiles and other goodies are expensive… You wouldnt wanna Killary to be in charge of whole planet, do you?

    • vorontsevich says:

      How about we give Mr. Mitch here a chance at being the Russian president for a month. Then we would see record economic growth, non-existent crime level, and no corruption anywhere. Heck, he would even take Mother Nature by the neck and stop any natural disaster from happening to Russia.

      Because after all, this was a man-made disaster.

      sorry for your pain and your bad luck but tell me ,……why are american houses made for just one generation? In fact the walls of those buildings are so skinny,,…..

      for all those who have lost everything,…i hope Mother Russia helps you out and be brave!!

      • RB says:

        US houses are like this because they have warm weather so no need to worry about keeping safe from arctic cold or from Russian bears. They have million’s of trees so its easier to rebuild then to worry about the next gen. Also the whole east US roofing is almost one hundred percent tar paper and stone. No tiles or cement, just shingles every fifteen years.

  8. petrohof says:

    much of this is a ‘flood plain’ you know what that is? but people will rebuild in the same place and it will flood again, and again. it is indeed sad, but it is also avoidable.

    • vorontsevich says:

      You can’t just take whole province and move it somewhere. That would be nice if it could work, but its virtually impossible.

    • vorontsevich says:

      Besides, a location that’s “supposedly” safe from flooding may just lie in the shadow of a volcano, or smack on top of a fault line. You just can’t have the best of everything. You just gotta make do with what you have.
