KHERSON, Ukraine — Familiar streets and neighborhoods in Kherson were transformed into rivers after a catastrophic collapse of the Kakhovka dam, which left swaths of southern Ukraine flooded. Personal belongings flowed past as rescuers worked to evacuate people.

In special vehicles that could drive through waist-deep floodwater and on cobblestone roads, volunteers picked up grandmothers, children, couples and their beloved pets.
