USSURIYSK, September 2. /TASS/. More than 4,000 people have been affected by typhoon Goni that has brought flash floods in the Primorye region, in Russia’s Far East, Deputy Governor Alexander Los said on Wednesday.
"In total, more than 1,100 houses have been inundated in the region, and over 4,000 people have been affected," Los said, adding that the authorities are preparing to compensate for the damage.
A state of emergency has been declared in 10 municipal districts of the region, he said. The official praised local emergencies personnel for the relief effort after the typhoon, saying this is the strongest storm in the past 60 years.
The super-powerful typhoon, which battered western Japan in late August, slammed into the Primorye region on August 27 and brought the record-level rainfall. The emergency services in Vladivostok were put on high alert to deal with the aftermath.
