More than 100 homes are within the flood zone in the Yakutian village of Vitim as the Lena River bursts its banks. 72 people, including 10 children, have been evacuated from them. According to the main centre of the Emergency Situations Ministry for the Republic of Saha (Yakutia), the water level in the Lena (Vitim is located on its left bank) has reached 1,113 centimetres, a metre higher than the critical mark. The Lena has burst its banks and flooded Vitim because the Mamakan hydropower station in the Irkutsk region has dumped excessive amounts of water into the river, the Far Eastern regional centre of the Emergency Situations Ministry reports.
