The Irkutsk region has been hit by torrential rains, causing Lake Baikal and the Angara River to burst their banks. At least five people have been killed and hundreds injured.
At least five people have died and hundreds more injured in massive floods sweeping Siberia on Saturday, Russian media has reported. President Vladimir Putin travelled to the affected area as he returned from the G20 summit in Japan.
At least 10,000 people are affected by the floods brought on by torrential rains. At least 50 villages on the shores of Lake Baikal are inaccessible, and the larger city of Bratsk has also been affected. More than 4,000 buildings have been destroyed as well as many bridges and roads.
However, we were thankful to get this good report from Brother Vil
Greetings from Siberia!
Dear Brother Herb, Salutations! As you may have already heard on the news we have had quite a flood in our parts. Waters rose very high. The similar flood in scale took place in 1812. The part of the city where the meeting house is located has been flooded, yet Lord has miraculously preserved the building. The water in the brook next to it rose slightly and did not cause any damage to the building.
Our house has not suffered from the flood, nor has any of our member's place been damaged by it. Great is the Lord, Whose mercy endureth forever!
Shumsky village was also flooded, but even there none of the believers have suffered any damage. Praise be to God! Now the water is rapidly decreasing. The bridges, roads are being repaired. If God willing we will see you shortly in Nizhneudinsk!
Pray that the Lord save many souls, may these events be used to remind them who the true Lord is! "...for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness". (Isa.26:9b)
