Flood at the Maya

Swift Maya River is the biggest tributary to the mighty Uda. In the end of July we have observed here a high flood - in the Uda River such water do not remember even the old-timers. In the lower reaches of the Maya the water level was rising for 6 meters. The water was increasing swiftly - up to 2 meters in a day!
