The first ice movements on the Yenisey River in the Dudinka area were noted on May 11. The water in the river rose by 61 cm per day and reached the level of 12 m 41 cm. It is expected that the ice will pass in the coming days. According to experts, there is a high probability that this year the ice drift in Dudinka will break the 1997 record when the ice movement in the Arctic capital was recorded on May 21. That was the earliest ice drift according to the observations since 1989.
Taimyr rescuers remind that you should behave as carefully as possible on the shore, to prevent children and adolescents from being in open water.
In Igarka, the ice drift is already completed, the water level there is gradually dropping (by 10 cm over the past day). Ice is in full swing near the village of Potapovo, its intensity is rated at 6–7 points.
