In this regard, the akim of Atyrau region Serik Shapkenov reported on the situation in the region, where the implementation of flood control measures continues. On the entire length of coastal protection dams (more than 520 km) organised round-the-clock duty.

At the same time, in those districts of Atyrau region where the flood situation is stable, commissions on liquidation of consequences are actively working. Thus, in Zhylyoi district, 3,730 applicants were paid a lump-sum allowance of 100 monthly payments totalling 1.3 billion tenge. The Commission accepted 2,727 applications, conducted technical inspections of 2,671 houses and assessed 2,624 houses. Construction has begun on 70 houses, and 15 residents have received payments for repair and reconstruction work. Assessment specialists are working around the clock.

In general, in the regions of Kazakhstan affected by floods, more than 60 thousand people have already returned to their homes. Residents who are in evacuation centres are provided with necessary assistance by local executive bodies.

26,651 families have received a lump sum payment of 100 MRP, totalling over 10 billion tenge.

Local akimats are working to provide quality housing for the victims. 239 families have received houses and flats to replace their destroyed housing.

Head of the Government emphasised the pace of work.

There is a large front of work to be done in terms of assessment, compensation for damage, restoration and construction. At this stage we see the dynamics, but there is a lag at the stage of damage assessment. In the conditions of emergency all the processes need to be accelerated. It is necessary to promptly redirect appraisers from the regions where the calculation of damage has already been completed to Atyrau and other regions," Olzhas Bektenov emphasised and instructed to carry out a quality assessment in the shortest possible time.

Local Akimats are instructed to assist the arriving specialists.
