#AceNewsReport – June.30: A heavy downpour resulted in flooding just outside of Moscow’s largest airport, Sheremetyevo, causing traffic jams, but also bringing out the ingenuity in people trying to get in or out of the air hub: Despite the weather warnings, a number of people traveling to and from the airport were trapped on the road leading to Sheremetyevo on Friday.
A number of videos from these unlucky folks have been posted on social media: One video shows two dozen men and women holding umbrellas while crammed on the back of an open truck like livestock. Another shows cars submerged up to the doorknobs in flood water, apparently left on the road by their owners.
The flooding also forced airline crew members to go barefoot with their pants rolled up to save their shiny shoes and uniforms from the dirty water: Twitter users likened the current state of Sheremetyevo to popular tourist locations, such as Venice………………….“If you don’t go to Venice, Venice will come to you,” one of the many witty travellers wrote on Twitter………………Within the past two days, Moscow has received 40 percent of its monthly average rainfall, or 30mm of rain.
The authorities at Sheremetyevo advised people to travel via Aeroexpress (a train linking the city with its three major air hubs), though they also said the flooding will not cause delays in airport operations: However, some people posted videos directly from the tarmac, which appears to be filled with water.
/TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that in four days’ time, on July 3, he is intending to hold another meeting on the current situation with the flood in the Russian Region of Irkutsk: “We will [meet] on July 3, I will gather you in Moscow too, those who I will deem necessary to gather to understand how the situation is unfolding and how the work is organized. We will speak about it again in Moscow,” the Russian leader said at a meeting in Bratsk’s Airport late at night.
Putin also underlined that the scale of destruction is huge: He announced that a draft instruction would be devised: “Following our today’s meeting, a draft instruction will be prepared. I will sign it now. But what we paid attention to, what stands out, is that the scale is huge. In essence, the situation is not over yet, the flood continues, it is still unclear when water will subside, we can just say when it will approximately happen. While the time for recovery is shrinking like the Wild Ass’s Skin. There is less and less of it,” the President noted.
According to the data of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, 353 people were injured in the emergency in the Irkutsk Region, while 97 of them were hospitalised: Heavy rains have caused the powerful flooding in the Irkutsk region. 4,042 residential buildings where 9,919 people live were flooded, as well as 41 other facilities of social importance.
