Death and mass destruction: Over a hundred killed in fatal southern Russia flooding (VIDEO, PHOTOS) — RT
Massive flooding in the Krasnodar region in Russia’s south has left 104 dead and hundreds more have been displaced, while the death toll continues to rise. There has not been anything like it for the past 70 years, authorities say. Five people were electrocuted as an electricity transformer fell into water while many more drowned. Russia’s Emergency Ministry has only confirmed 66 deaths, while Russia's Investigative Committee estimates the total death toll at 104. In the Krymsky district alone, at least 92 bodies have been found, federal investigators report. Three more have been killed in Novorossiysk and nine in the Gelendzhik district. A 10-year-old child was among the casualties.
