Huge flood in Siberia – More than 20 dead, more missing, injured or displaced

On top of this over 4000 building destroyed.

“Imagine so many people without a place to live and winter comes very early,” says reader Adoni. “No time to rebuild.”

“Also thousands of houses flooded. The mud could very easily turn to ice before houses can be cleaned. I know it is in Russia-THE ENEMY- but they are people too.”

Russian officials have raised the death toll from the flooding in the southern Siberian region of Irkutsk to 23, reports say. Eight others remaineded missing on July 8.

The flooding affected 107 towns and villages in the region, inundating more than 10,000 homes and displacing about 33,000 people.

According to preliminary estimates, the floods have caused 29 billion rubles ($454 million) in damages.

  1. Russia isn’t anyone’s enemy. From the American point of view, the entire world is their enemy, which should tell you where the problem is.

    • THE ENEMY was sarcasm! I visited Moscow in Russia and Kyiv and Odessa in Ukraine and the people were very nice and friendly and in love with many “amerinan” things.

  2. To be quite frank, Russia is NOT the enemy, and they could be a great friendly nation to have. If we stopped acting like Stalin still ran the place, we would be far better off. What will always amuse me in a sad sort of way is that we can readily see and say that the MSM lies to us about climate change and dozens of other things, but we stupidly are willing to believe them when they say Russia is a bad country, just like we seem to want to believe that everything our government tells us about foreign countries is to be treated as if it came from the Bible itself.

    • And what is more, it is a CHRISTIAN country, not Muslim. The only possible place for asylum after Islam covers the rest of the European Continent.

  3. I was born in USA, still here 63 years later and I do not consider the peoples of Russia as my enemy. Very sorry to hear about this flooding and I hope people can be relocated to productive areas quickly before winter hits, the real enemy.

  4. i noted the “enemy” bit
    curiously the new russia NOT the ussr hasnt done anything looking like a war in far longer than other so called civilized nations(looking at you uSSa) crimea wasnt a war and georgia chechen was decades ago and cause on both sides.
    but yeah AID help isnt offered even though Russia sends aid and medical support to many
    ie for ebola in sth africa they sent fully equipped hospitals but the media managed to not mention it..
    take note of just how much aid or help is NOT offered this time.

  5. In October 2018, Russian researcher Valentina Zharkova presented her Climate – Solar Magnetic Field (C-SMF) correlation model to Britain’s Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF). So much for “consensus”: Nine months later, out of 150 models Zharkova’s was one of only two correctly predicting that Solar Cycle 24 (serialized from 1755) would prove much weaker than Cycle 23 (ended December 2008, 12.3 years from August 1995).

    Not only does Mde. Zharkova’s work make nonsense of hyper-politicized Green Gang “anthropogenic warming”, but from December 2017 Australian researcher Robert Holmes’ peer-reviewed Molar Mass Version of the Ideal Gas Law has definitively refuted any possible CO2 connection to climate variations: Where GAST Temperature T = PM/Rp, any planet’s near-surface global Temperature derives from its Atmospheric Pressure P times Mean Molar Mass M over its Gas Constant R times Atmospheric Density p.

    Skewed by the 1,200-year Younger Dryas “cold shock” of BC 10,950 – 9,450, we assert that the 12,250-year Holocene Interglacial Epoch from 14,400 YBP (BC 12,400) ended 12,250+3,500-12,250 = AD 1350, coincident with Kamchatka’s strato-volcano Kambalny Eruption precipitating a 500-year Little Ice Age through AD 1850/1890. Now on the threshold of a 70+ year “dead sun” Grand Solar Minimum similar to that of 1645 – 1715, mounting evidence projects geologically near-term reversion to a cyclically recurrent Pleistocene Ice Time due to cover 70% of Earth’s habitable landmasses with ice sheets two miles thick.

  6. Russians are christian white people and therefore not the enemy. The western nations and people have problems with
    enemy identification and this is leading to their downfall.

  7. All ordinary Americans have far more in common with ordinary Russians than they will ever have with their own Government.

    Your enemy are extremely rich, extremely murderous banking interests who see mass genocide as merely acceptable downsides to making even more money…..

  8. I am wondering if all the reports I have seen about glasiers calving has more to do with their growth and less with their receeding. I also wonder if the so called sealevel rise has more to do with land subsidence and less with ocean rising. In the Texas gulf coast we have had much trouble with land subsidance due to water wells as well as in west Texas. I think we need to rethink these things and to refute the alarmism of the media.

  9. Sarcasm is a thing (although they did grab Crimea and part of Ukraine). I note that the msm is pushing the idea that Siberia is warming up too much, that it is hotter than ever. They are even floating the insane idea of cutting down all the trees in much of Siberia to cool the place off. This was on one of the major networks.

  10. Hey folks, it was obvious he was being sarcastic and he even commented to verify that. It is the left wing Dems who keep screaming about Russia Russia Russia.

  11. I do not agree with the enemy bit. As a first generation American born to a family who fled communist Romania due to Russia’s invading us after WW2, you would think that we would hate them but we don’t. It was their government that did what they did and many in their own country suffered because of their actions. Russia and the communist party has killed far more people than our evil American government ever has or will. Russian and American governments aren’t innocent by any means. However, Americans don’t hate Russians, the democratic party along with the MSM wants you to think we do. It is unfortunate the world we live in and I do hope they are able to rebuild. It wont be reported but I’m sure that our president has been in talks with Putin regarding this tragedy. Very sad.

  12. The flooded area of Irkutsk is on the shores of Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world.
    A huge percentage of ALL the fresh water on Earth is in Lake Baikal.
    Lake Baikal is just north of Mongolia and in the very south of Siberia.
    A great many people have gone off the point here.

  13. Here is some info on Lake Baikal.

    Lake Baikal is the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world, containing 22–23% of the world’s fresh surface water. With 23,615.39 km3 (5,670 cu mi) of fresh water, it contains more water than the North American Great Lakes combined. With a maximum depth of 1,642 m (5,387 ft), Baikal is the world’s deepest lake.
    So it is immense and surrounded by mountains.
    Imagine that……1.642 MILES deep !
    It must be one of the most unexplored wildlife areas on the planet.
    I feel sorry for the ordinary Russian people who have lost their homes. This area of southern Siberia has some of the coldest winter temperatures on Earth.
