To prevent damages for people living next of lakes area officials have currently increased the passage of the main river Vuoksi, which ends to Lake Ladoga in Russia. In practise that is done by big hydroelectric power plants, where they run some of the water freely passing the turbines. Usually these actions have been performed on spring time, but now 3-4 months earlier. This is another symptom of global warming thought...
