Uzh flashed its "belly"
Due to hot, dry weather, the Uzh river significantly shallowed. Within Uzhgorod now it can be easily waded, without even knee-wetting: water in the deepest places barely covers the ankle. The water level dropped so that the river is divided into two parts by numerous islands, where even shrubs and grass have already grown. However the first rains that forecasters predict within a week will make Uzh full-flowing again.
