The victims of the February floods

These days in Brest and Gomel — winter flooding caused by prolonged thaw. The water in the rivers running strong and where many podtopilo rural farmsteads and even homes.


"We do not need that power!"

Which year during the flood homes of neighboring villages with Brest floods the water. This year, the problems began in February. The water in the flood plain of the Bug in some villages rises very rapidly.

Nepli village, which is located about five kilometers from Brest, turned into a large lake, in the midst of which are at home. Water from the Bug River flooded the entire main street, home gardens, cellars. Tatiana, a local resident, says here now and ambulance does not get:

Swim here, quickly begin to sink

"Swim here quickly begin to sink. Hard the young and the elderly.'s How we suffer here. Authorities do not want to do it. Feeling that they need us. Here, five kilometers from the city, but the authorities do not need us. And who we then need? Who will help us? Nobody, it turns out ".

Last year, the village were on duty the Emergency Situations Ministry, the police. This year, it is not. The villagers are outraged, saying that the local administration would try to solve this problem, the more that promises to help were heard:

We promised to build a bridge. And where is he? …

"We promised to build a bridge. But where is he? Where is the money that was allocated for this bridge? Spend? Pipes laid, but the water carried them away. So, other measures are required. What we did, every year we live? Are we no technique not to solve the problem? But Alexander Lukashenko urges to go live in the village, said that would help. So help us. Why do not you help? "

To save the house from the flood, the owner took it to the hill

Basil, a resident of Nepli, using the technique dragged his house on the highest place where the water is almost looms:

"House tractors dragged by cables, as in the place where he stood before, ever was water. And so we raised the building, planted telephone poles and slowly dragged like sledding, my home here."

Vasily said the officials asked the question of when a problem will be solved with a high water. According to the rescuers, but in 2012 it is planned to build a dam. But, says Basil, plans — one thing and reality — something quite different:

"Where now excavated road, trying to make a bridge. Brought material, building even. But they have lain for about ten years until all pilfered. So there is no bridge, no roads, nothing."

Villagers say they can solve the problem. In the summer, when the water recedes, the river clean enough to hold channels. Many even say that they themselves will go to work and help in this:

"Suffice it to clean the river, put the pipe. And the water will no longer come here. Later fill dams, river water and this will no longer have to fill."
