Significant flooding continues to impact parts of Irkutsk region as of Tuesday, July 2. Floods have reportedly displaced some 33,000 people across 55 villages regionwide. The Russian Emergency Ministry has confirmed that 18 people were killed in the floods and as many as 17 others remain missing. Emergency personnel also indicated that several villages remain isolated from emergency supplies. The flooding has reportedly blocked many major roads in the region - including sections of the P-255 Siberia highway - and significant power outages have been reported.

Advice

Individuals in the Irkutsk region are advised to monitor flood levels and local weather alerts, anticipate road closures and other transportation disruptions, and remember that walking or driving through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) is enough to knock over an adult - and that floodwater may contain chemical products and wastewater; all items having come into contact with floodwater should be disinfected and all foodstuffs discarded.
