Yakutia 24 TV channel: Republic Ecology Ministry has developed maps of flood zones.
“Together with the Ministry of Emergencies, we developed cartographic materials with the consideration of Yakutia zones that have ever been flooded. There are 128 settlements that have been flooded. We developed the maps by hydrological calculations and surveys,” says the Ecology Ministry.
It is noted that work on the project began in 2016. To date, all information has been sent for approval to the state real estate cadastre.
