It is impossible to enter the water off the coast of the Sea of Azov near the villages of Golubitskaya and Dolzhanskaya, it is teeming with jellyfish, resembling jelly or jelly.
In order to be able to enter the water, they try to fence off the beach strips with protective nets. Jellyfish got to the Crimea.
An even more frightening picture is on the Ukrainian coast of the Azov Sea. The layer of jellyfish near the coast is 10-15 centimeters thick.
At local camp sites, they are fighting for the client, removing sea inhabitants by hand, with shovels, they are taken out on a tractor, they even tried to assemble them with a loader bucket. For example, in Kirillovka they had to give up swimming - the concentration of poison in the water near the coast causes itching.
"At the bases where there are pools there and sit, otherwise you simply won't go into the water. I went in yesterday - they just bit me, stung," said Yevgeny Gurtovenko.
The invasion of jellyfish is primarily associated with abnormal heat in southern latitudes. On the eve, in some places in Stavropol and Kalmyk steppes, the thermometers rose above +40. Even on the coast of the Sea of Azov it was about +35. And in some places the water warmed up to +30 degrees.
In such conditions, they are now swimming in the Indian Ocean, in Thai Phuket. And in the Black Sea, the water is only a couple of degrees cooler. 28 - as in the Egyptian Sharm el-Sheikh.
Storms often also help beaches get rid of jellyfish. This is what happened the night before in the Ukrainian Kirillovka. The waves of invertebrates were carried away from the coast. And the windy weather will continue on Thursday.
The strongest gusts will be observed in the zone of the frontal sections, just over the south and southeast of European Russia. Up to 20-25 m / s and more, the wind can accelerate on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus, the eastern part of the Crimea, in the lower reaches of the Volga, Don, as well as in the Stavropol region.
The most intense showers are also expected here. Moreover, in the Volga region, as well as on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus, over 20 mm of precipitation can fall. For example, for Kazan this is a ten-day amount of moisture.
But the heat will begin to subside. Reluctantly, though. Today, 30-degree temperatures will remain only in the extreme south and southeast of European Russia. On the Lower Volga and the eastern slopes of the Caucasus, in places above +35. And in Crimea, more comfortable +25, +30 are expected.
It is hoped that these conditions will be less comfortable for jellyfish, and their number will decrease. Their maximum number is usually recorded until the end of summer.
