The capital of Buryatia is preparing for the flood season. According to the mayor of Ulan-Ude, about 19 thousand people live in the flood zone of the Uda and Selenga rivers.

As reported on his page in Instagram Mayor of Ulan-Ude Igor Shutenkov, now they are preparing for a possible emergency. Monitoring of all gauging stations on the Uda and Selenga rivers will begin in May.

Experts have already checked the structures and equipment in those places that fall into the flooded zone. Also, residents are counted in areas of probable flood. The number of pensioners, disabled people and children who may need special assistance in case of an emergency is calculated in advance.

At the same time, Igor Shutenkov noted that usually the water rises in August-September. However, this year they decided to prepare for a possible emergency in advance. All works will be financed from the reserve fund. As points of temporary accommodation, 29 schools of the city and three children's camps will be used, private companies are ready to provide 72 buses for the removal of the population. Several stores have signed an agreement to provide essential goods and food in case of an emergency.

According to the latest estimates, about seven thousand houses, in which 19 thousand people live, fall into the zone of possible flooding. Evacuation plans and schemes have already been developed for the private sector and gardening associations, which are also located in this area.
