Due to enemy missile strikes on the Pechenegsky reservoir, flooding of territories downstream is possible.
Residents of the Pechenezh community of Kharkiv region are urged to follow official reports around the clock about the situation at the local dam on the Seversky Donets River and, in case of alarm, urgently move to safe places.
This is stated in the appeal published by the Pechenegsky village head Alexander Gusarov in Telegram on the evening of September 20.
“Over the past 24 hours, the Russian army has launched and continues to launch missile attacks on the dam of the Pechenegsky reservoir. There is a likely threat of destruction by the enemy of the dam of the Pechenegsky hydroelectric complex. An emergency situation may arise due to catastrophic flooding of territories downstream,” the appeal says.
Citizens are warned that there is a threat of flooding for part of the streets, both in the village of Pechenegy, and for certain areas of the villages of Kitsevka and Pyatnitskoye.
“In the event of an alarm, it is necessary to take essential items and move: residents of Beregovaya, Kharkovskaya, Rybnaya, Sosnovaya, etc. streets in the village of Pechenegi – to Zinchenko Street (the area of the former eight-year school); residents of Gogol Street in the village of Kitsevka – to the mountain (cemetery area); residents of Demina Street in the village of Pyatnitskoye – to the hill of the village (closer to the forest),” the local authorities inform.
“Follow the announcements of the Pechenezh village council,” the appeal reads.
Recall that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the evening report reported that in the village of Pechenegy, the invaders yesterday tried to destroy the dam of the Pechenegsky reservoir, but were unsuccessful.
In September, the opponents several times hit the dam in Krivoy Rog, Dnepropetrovsk region, and residential buildings were flooded. Later, the flooding of residential buildings was eliminated .
