This summer Russia will become more frequent natural disasters. This was stated by senior researcher at the main geophysical Observatory imeni A. I. Voyeykov Andrey Kiselev in an interview with the portal Ura.ru.
"the Trend is exactly the same. It shows statistics of Roshydromet and world insurance agencies" — he told.
The expert emphasizes that the Russian regions can collapse tornadoes, hurricanes, heavy rains. It also does not exclude the risk of drought in some parts of the country.
Kiselev believes that natural disasters may affect all regions. At the same time to predict where their destructiveness is more noticeable, almost impossible. According to him, they usually local and of short duration.
The expert suggests that summer in Russia is warm. The sharp rise in temperature in the far North could lead to permafrost degradation. According to a climatologist, this is likely to entail accidents at linear facilities: pipelines, highways, transmission lines. On the other hand, the melting of glaciers opens up new opportunities for shipping.
