    Hundreds evacuated as heavy floods sweep across Russia’s Siberia

     

    Hundreds of people have been evacuated and tens of thousands left without power after heavy floods struck southern Siberia. A state of emergency has been introduced in three regions.

    Those areas are the Altai region, Khakassia Republic, and Altai Republic, said Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov, who added that a “high alert†has been issued for two other regions - Tuva Republic and Buryatia Republic.

    Various saddos trying to make it a global warming blame issue in the comments.Never pass up the chance of propaganda capitalising on someone else's minor disaster.One person who actually knows the area points out it is not in a permafrost region.The weather in that part of Siberia has been cool and frequently rainy through spring.

    Sick: 

     

     

    Pasha 01.06.2014 00:49These floods are not in the permafrost zone of Siberia. Nor are they in any way connected to climate change. The weather this spring-summer has been a lot cooler than usual. The floods have simply been caused by a lot of extra rain in recent times, and the rivers swelling. But the spring melt came early this year and was already finished over a month ago, so these floods have nothing to do with melting.Anette Mor 01.06.2014 00:28It is going to be very difficult in this part of the world as permafrost is melting with climate change. Perhaps people need to resettle up hills and rely more on boats and small plains for transportation and supplies. Insurance is not obligatory. Many people do not have any. They are normally rehoused by the state. Russia established exellent emergency services. Managing these disasters became much easier and casualties reduced dramatically. Every country has to respond to climate change by setting up similar structures with a new world agency coordinating them.

    Your the saddo making it a global warming issue yet again. And yet again in a weather thread. Nowhere in the article does it mention global warming or permafrost and neither did I. It was simply about heavy rains and floods.

     

     

    Meanwhile, Puchkov also noted that other regions are at risk from the flooding - such as Sakha (Yakutia) Republic and the Amur region – due to the fact that rivers in southern Siberia have responded quickly to the heavy rains.
