Water levels in the Ukrainian port city of Mykolaiv, located near Kherson, have receded down to 100 cm as of June 9, the Mykolaiv Hydrometeorological Center reported.
“At the mouth of the river Southern Buh (near the city of Mykolaiv), the maximum water level peak occurred at midnight with an overall rise of one meter seven centimeters,” the center said.
“At 9:00 am, the water level had fallen by seven centimeters.”
On the evening of June 9, Mykolaiv mayor Oleksandr Senkevych stated that as of 5:00 pm, the water levels had stabilized at 100 cm.
The Hydrometeorological Center also reported that water levels at the mouth of the Dnipro River had also begun to show a tendency to fall, after stabilizing at about five meters 32 centimeters.
At the Dnipro-Buh Estuary near Ochakov, the overnight peak water level was recorded at 26 cm, and had stabilized by morning.
Many of the floodplains around the destroyed dam remain completely flooded, and evacuation efforts in Ukrainian-controlled territory in Kherson Oblast are ongoing. Russian forces are reported to be shelling rescuers and evacuees in the city, while preventing evacuations in occupied territory, which has been significantly more affected than the Ukrainian-controlled areas.

Truth can be hard to tell from fiction these days. Every viewpoint has its audience of backers and supporters, no matter how absurd.
If conscious disinformation is reinforced by state propaganda apparatus and budget, its outcomes may become deadly.
