|Extremely heavy rainfall in Russia and China since the end of July has caused the Amur River to rise to record levels, burst its banks and flood surrounding areas.
Russian authorities said local authorities planned to evacuate some 36,000 more people in the Khabarovsk region due to rising water levels.
The flooding is the worst to hit the region in over a century, with over 34,000 people affected and 130 settlements across 25 municipalities already under water, according to an emergency report of Russia’s EMERCOM.
