Hydrologists are waiting for the intensification of the flood on the Amur River due to two powerful typhoons. As a result, the water level in the river will rise one and a half meters higher than previously predicted. It will reach the most critical points near Khabarovsk, Yelabuga and Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

According to Vyacheslav Parshin, the head of the Khabarovsk Hydrometeorological Center, during the CoES, typhoon Lekima will be the first to come to the region, which has already caused heavy rainfall in China. On the night of August 15, it will fall on Khabarovsk and the southern regions of the region. Following him, the rain will bring the even more powerful hurricane Krosa, which is now located south of the Japanese island of Honshu, but begins to drift north.

“Next week, we expect a further increase in Khabarovsk in the range from 6,3 to 6,8 meters on August 19-23, well, we hope that it will pass along the lower border. In Yelabug, the level will rise to 630-680 cm 20-24 in August, in Troitsky 470-500 cm - 22-26 in August, Malmysh - 530-580 cm 23-27 in August, Komsomolsk-on-Amur - 630-680-25-29-220-270 August, and then everything will dissipate, Nikolaevsk-on-Amur - 2-5 cm XNUMX-XNUMX September, ”said Vyacheslav Parshin.

According to weather forecasts, the high level of Amur, which will be established at Khabarovsk on 12-14 in August, will last until the second decade of the month. Moreover, August specialists expect rainy - two typhoons will come from Japan. In Khabarovsk started to build additional dam, which will be designed for a water level of 7,5 meters. Also the dam area near the dam flooded the barge, which should hold back the flood wave. The vessel lies in the area of ​​the backwash until the level of the Amur River is normalized.
