Head of the Krasnodar Center for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, Yuri Tkachenko, told reporters that he hoped that in the Crimean region of automatic monitoring system will raise the level of rivers and gidrosignalizatsiya that will more accurately predict the scale of disaster.
Tkachenko said that the forecast of rain, of course, very important. But sometimes the situation is on an unexpected scenario, as it was in Krymsk. Meteorologists issued a storm warning on the eve of about 8 pm, but none of this magnitude of destruction could not predict. In such cases, hydrological sensors could save the situation because more time would give rescue workers and authorities.
"There must be not only forecast the top, but the bottom. Especially in mountainous areas where the level rises rapidly and the time for reflection remains. Most important — elements not catch unawares," — said Tkachenko.
In the example he set Tuapse district, where after a flood in the rivers hydrological set the alarm. Upon reaching pavadkoopasnyh marks automatically send warning SMS-messages, and attendants in rural areas may take the necessary measures. According to Tkachenko, even if it will be impossible to save the house, casualties can be avoided in this case.
At the same time, he said, the installation of the system is actually not difficult and will not necessarily be expensive.
"I hope that it will be in all municipalities at risk" — said Tkachenko.
In this case, turning to the people, he said that the security services ignore warnings even when the probability of an emergency scenario of only 50%, not worth it.
"Better to be evacuated twice falsely, and the third time to evacuate during a disaster, to avoid casualties," — said Tkachenko.
Flooding on the night of July 7, 7000 over flooded homes in three cities (Gelendzhik, Crimea, Novorossiysk) and a number of villages of the Krasnodar Territory. Violated the electrical, gas and water supply, road and rail traffic. According to MOE, killed 171 people, mostly in Krymsk, when there was the biggest shock element.
