In the Kostanay region, 100 settlements are subject to floods this year, to some of which mobile teams of the Emergency Department from the Kostanay region were sent to monitor the situation.

As early as March 20, the territorial subsystem of the state system of civil protection of the Kostanay region was put on high alert in the region. “Since March 24, the regional operational headquarters for coordinating the activities of the command and control agencies in the conditions of deterioration of the flood situation has been deployed in the Crisis Center of the Emergency Department of the Kostanay region. To assess the readiness of local executive bodies for the flood period and control over the work on cleaning the culverts, the Emergency Department created mobile groups that will be sent to the most flood-prone areas of the region - Arkalyk, Auliyekol, Naurzum, Karasu, Kostanay, Uzunkol, Sarykol and Mendykary districts, informed T.
