MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. The Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi, which hosted the 2014 Winter Olympics, was hit by the worst rainfall in the history of weather records and is bracing up for more showers, meteorologists said on Friday.
"Sochi recorded 212 millimeters of rain from Wednesday night to Thursday evening," a spokesman for the Russian Hydrometeorological Center said adding that the city would normally record just 104 millimeters of rain in June.
He said more rainfall was expected to hit Sochi during the weekend but it would not be as disastrous.
Local authorities cancelled the celebrations of the All-Russia Olympic Day set for June 27.
The Russian Emergencies Ministry said over 1,000 people, including 270 children, were rescued from flooded houses and cars.
Hundreds of volunteers are helping the local housing services to deal with the flooding aftermath.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said the federal authorities are ready to offer assistance to Sochi.
