A strong wind is raging in the Rostov region, Region.
Since a few days now, there is almost no water left at the mouth of the Don – at Azov, at Aksay and at Rostov-on-Don. And the Taganrog Bay looks like a desert, not like an arm of the Sea of Azov.
The Don River is the fifth-longest river in Europe and one of the major Eurasian rivers. The Taganrog Bay is the northeastern arm of the Sea of Azov also known as the flooded estuary of the Don River.
Within the last few days, their waters have almost disappeared, receding at levels never seen in the last decades.
Officials suggest the strong and sustained winds that are currently blowing in the region are responsible for this massive water receding phenomenon along the Don River and the coast of the Taganrog Bay.
Meanwhile, local residents are sharing what they have found on those now giant beaches without water.
It even seems there is no water anymore in some places:
Now, it’s pretty cool what local have found on the water-free beaches:
This water disappearance in Russia is no tsunami warning and is probably due to the strong winds raging in the region since a few days:
The Taganrog Bay is normally full of water… Now, it looks like a desert after all the water receded.
The water levels in the Don River, the fifth-largest river in Europe have dropped under the alert levels to its lowest in decades.
Such weather phenomenon may also occur when a large storm rages off the coast. [Gov.Ru, Don24]
