PERM, July 19 (Itar-Tass) — One person died and ten more were injured in a storm in the Perm Territory, a spokesman for the territorial emergencies administration told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the area was hit by a heavy storm with torrential rains, thunderstorms, hails and wind gusts of up to 20-25 meters per second.
“According to preliminary information, a man was killed by current electricity in the settlement of Lysva, ten more persons sought medical help in other settlements of the Perm Territory,” the spokesman said.
Eyewitnesses say strong winds were tearing roofs off buildings and uprooting trees.
The storm cut electricity supplies to the Sivinsky, Vereshchaginsky, Ilyinsky and Nytvensky districts leaving 260 settlements with an overall population of more than 118,000 people without electricity.
