"A regional emergency regime is being introduced in Primorye. The damage from the disaster is such that the resources of the municipalities cannot cope with it," he said.
"This regime will allow to increase the measures of support for the population affected by the flooding," the Primorsky governor added.
The flooding, triggered by heavy rains brought by Typhoon Khanun and a polar front, wreaked havoc in Primorye. Several municipalities of this region have declared a state of emergency in the past few days.
