ARKHANGELSK, November 15 (Itar-Tass) — A fierce storm hit the city of Arkhangelsk in northern European Russia, bringing water levels in the Severnaya Dvina river above critical marks by 30 centimetres, a spokesman for the Sevgidromet weather forecast agency told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
According to the spokesman, water flooded the city’s districts located on islands and wharfs in the port.
The wind velocity reached 22 meters per second overnight.
