Short summary
Heavy ice jams during spring floods are usual on the rivers in the north of the European part of Russia. The last catastrophic flood in the area of study took place in the spring of 2013. An assessment of the probability of floods and formation of ice jams, calculations of duration and depth of flooding at various water levels, with an assessment of the corresponding economic losses in the north of Russia are considered in the current research.
