Travel to Russia by train

Spring flood in Siberia has turned into a natural disaster this year. It is caused by combination of snowy winter and the summer weather of the last few days. It caused very serious floods in the Irkutsk Region, Kemerovo Region and Krasnoyarsk Territory.
      On the May, 1 the flood waters in the Irkutsk Region swept away two highway bridges on the rivers Iya and Ilir; the first one is beyond repair and is replaced by pontoon ferry. The second one is to be repaired after the flood finishes.
      Whole settlements and villages were evoked. Moreover, heavy rains of the late April and ice-melt waters swept away part of roads and highways in these regions. Timely measures have remedied situation.
