The seasonal ice melting in the Yakutia and Krasnoyarsk regions of Russia caused a rise of water level in Siberian rivers, triggering floods in towns and villages.

Ice jams on the Lena river led to the water rising two metres higher than the critical level.

Emergency services blasted the ice to help the water go through.

Rescuers carry out the evacuation of local residents by boats, no casualties have been reported as of Thursday.
