Some water indicators in the rivers of Transcarpathia reach the figures that were recorded during the flood of 2010 - regional water experts said. However, they say that the forecast is rather positive.

At a considerable number of observation posts, a decrease in water levels is observed. But in several rivers, maximum levels are being formed.

Maximum levels are being formed in the middle reaches of the rivers of Borzhava, Rika, Tereblya, Teresva and Tisa, on the stretch V.Bychkiv - Khust that can reach the second and third degree of protection with the release of water on the floodplain.
