Of course, the Sozh poured not only in Gomel. I work in a village 12 km north of the city. For several days I have been watching from the window of the bus, as river water entering new territory. I tried to take pictures, but they are blurry because the bus did not stop. But on Saturday, my colleagues and I went to look at the spill of Sozh.
Our school is on a hill and and a magnificent view of Vetka is open from the high bank of the Sozh. We saw that after the whole floodplain went under the water, the forests are in the water too.
I will not tell much. Let the photos tell all for me.
