ROSTOV-ON-DON, July 1. /TASS/. A teenage girl died and at least four more people were injured after floods caused by heavy rains hit Russia’s southern city of Rostov-on-Don on Thursday, a spokesman for the local Emergencies Ministry told TASS.
"A total of five people were hurt, including one dead," the spokesman said. "Work on the elimination of the natural calamity’s consequences is currently underway."
Natalia Ustimenko, a spokeswoman for the Rostov Region’s Interior Ministry, told TASS that the person killed in the natural calamity was a 14-year-old girl.
"The girl was dragged by a current underneath a parked car," Ustimenko said. "Witnesses tried to help her, but to no avail and she drowned."
The authorities of Rostov-on-Don set up emergencies headquarters to deal with the outcome of the disaster.
Deputy Mayor Vladimir Artsybashev said the cost of the damage inflicted by the natural calamity would be estimated later on Friday adding that up to 60 buildings, both living and non-residential, were flooded.
The airport of Rostov-on-Don continued its work in line with its schedule as the natural calamity outflanked the territory of its location, according to airport’s spokesperson Olga Ladeinshchikova.
Weather forecasters say heavy rains and strong winds will continue in the region on Friday as well as in the neighboring republics of Kalmykia, Adygea and in the Krasnodar Territory.
