Seasonal rains and floods in Kazakhstan

Seasonal rains and floods have given the Kazakh authorities in different parts of the country lots to worry about and lots to work on in the past two weeks. The flood response measures are being taken by the local government agencies. They include people’s evacuation in the affected areas, their relocation, financial and humanitarian assistance. This week, Atyrau regional authorities started payment of the financial assistance to some of the victims. In total, 11 housing monitoring committees have been set up in Atyrau. These committees are also working on the total estimation of the damage.
