The water level in the Amur River near Khabarovsk is currently at 720 millimeters, but weather experts have warned this could be just a pause.

Bird’s-eye view shots of what's happening now in and around the city of Khabarovsk can be found here:

Two friends from the Far East have come out with a rap-style song about the floods.

Tkach & Marta, as they call themselves, went to the settlement of Vladimirovka, near the city of Blagoveshchensk to film the swamped houses and cars.

In the opening shot, the villager shares his concerns saying the water came unexpectedly and flooded the village within 8 hours.

He blames the hydro power plant that released water from its reservoir.

He claims the electricity generated by the plant nearby is sold directly to China while the locals have to pay the bill at a high rate.

The man says if they authorities were wise enough, they could have dumped excess water earlier when the level in the local river was low.

In the video clip, the couple sings about soaring prices for housing and other social problems of the region.
