A Wooden Bridge Was Swept away in Suzdal on the River Kamenka

Authorities opened the dam gate to allow water to pass through as quickly as possible

Spring has prepared an unpleasant surprise for Suzdal. Due to precipitation and the ongoing ice drift, the water in the Kamenka River in Suzdal rose over 1.8 meters. As a result, walkways and bridges were flooded.

There were water in the streets Pokrovskaya and Pushkarskaya, between streets Naberezhnaya and Schmidt, and Mikhailovskaya and Yuzhnaya. The bridge in Pokrovskaya and Pushkarskaya streets is on a metal base, but its upper part could not withstand the ice drift – the wooden planking was swept away by the river.
