A high flood wave hits Samoylov Island

29.05.2014

The flood has come and gone, as you see in the video.  What was it like when it came pouring in?  We had been waiting and waiting, and the moment we noticed that the ice was moving was quite dramatic. Some of us grabbed coats, some of us grabbed sample bottles, many grabbed cameras.  A few said only, eh, my local Russian river floods like this every year and I've seen ice move before.
