Russia’s national emergency response center, part of the Emergency Situations Ministry, said on June 1 that its rescue workers have already evacuated more than 10,000 people from residential buildings in Siberia.

The center said it had moved some 1,500 people --- including more than 500 children – into a camp with temporary dwellings.
