SOCHI, June 25. /TASS/. The Olympic Park and the Formula One racing track in the Black Sea resort of Sochi have not been damaged by floods caused by torrential rains, the park's and autodrome's spokesmen said on Thursday.
"There is not water on the track, the situation is normal," the autodrome's press service said.
Train traffic halted at the nearby station of Adler has been partially restored, while the Sochi international airport has started operating outbound flights, officials said.
According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry, some 800 people are affected by the floods.
The ministry said it had established a crisis center to deal with the disaster.
"Some 1,500 personnel and 113 vehicles are dealing with the flooding aftermath," the ministry said.
The flooding caused by torrential rains brought the resort city to a standstill.
Floods turned some Sochi roads into rivers with many cars left completely underwater.
No children's camps and health facilities have been affected, the ministry said adding that rains in Sochi had stopped and water levels were declining.
In July 2012, a southern Russian town of Krymsk located some 200 kilometers away from Sochi was hit by destructive fllooding that left 156 people killed.
