As of this morning, there is spring flooding in Chernihiv region along the Desna River. In particular, it is taking place below Chernihiv with an increase in water level of 2-6 cm per day. The mouth of the Desna is expected to crest in the first half of May.

Ilia Perevozchykov, Head of the Hydrological Forecasts Department at the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center of the State Emergency Service, made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“In Chernihiv region, there is a possibility of flooding of floodplains and low-lying areas in Chernihiv, Koriukivka and Novhorod-Siverskyi districts,” he noted.

According to the representative of the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Center, floods are occurring along the rivers of the Carpathian region.

“These are the rivers of Zakarpattia and the Dniester basin. It can also be noted that spring freshet, or rather an influx of water, caused an increase in the water level in the reservoirs in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia and Kherson regions. Flooding is possible there, and because of this, an orange level of danger has already been announced in Kherson region.”
