MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators have not received a statement on persons missing as a result of a flood in Kuban, the regional Investigation Directorate reported on Wednesday.
“Information on missing persons has not been gotten,” the directorate said.
The flood in the Novomikhailovsky settlement took four human lives, including a 44-year-old woman from St Petersburg and a resident from Krasnodar whose car was washed off with the flood, as well as a 22-year-old Muscovite and a 84-year-old local woman.
“The 22-year-old Muscovite was on the territory of the Olymp stadium where he was caught by the water and died. Investigators study the cause why the young man was on the stadium at night time,” the Investigation Directorate said.
The 84-year-old pensioner died in her flat. “She lived on the ground floor of one of the houses of the Novomikhailovsky settlement. The woman suffered from a disease that restricted movement. When her flat was waterlogged the woman could not leave the flat by herself and died,” the Investigation Directorate said.
The inspection continues.
