Floods Hit Homes in Central Russia

More than 500 homes have been flooded in the central Russian region of Ryazan after melting snow caused the river Moksha to overflow, emergency officials said on Saturday.

At least 1,179 people in the 803-year-old Kadom village were affected by the flooding, Ryazan’s regional emergencies ministry said in a statement.

A state of emergency has been declared as flood waters continue to rise.

Five people have been evacuated.

Hundreds of homes were flooded in central and southern Russia earlier this month, and emergency officials said some 4,700 towns across the country may face floods in the coming weeks.
