IZHEVSK, July 05, 19:39 /ITAR-TASS/. Many streets, shopping centres and private houses have been flooded in Izhevsk, northern republic of Udmurtia, after heavy rains and lightning strikes have left some of the facilities without electricity.
According to preliminary information, no one was injured.
In some places, cars happened to be half-submerged in the water and flooded roads caused traffic jams and accidents in the city.
On Friday, a violent thunderstorm with heavy rains hit the city. Repair teams worked late into the night to clean the streets of sand, mud and rocks but all their efforts proved in vain as new rain came down in the morning.
“This is an extraordinary situation. We haven’t seen anything like this for some thirty years,” Konstantin Trufanov, an adviser to the city mayor, said.
Weather forecasts are warning of new rains in Udmurtia but they won’t be as heavy.
