Russia Krymsk Flood Compilation, July 2012, Death Toll: 172 (रूस बाढ़ संकलन) [13:46]
The equivalent of five months of rain fell overnight in some southern parts of the country according to the Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia. 172 people died during the floods, and Russian police said the floods damaged the homes of nearly 13000 people. According to the governor of Krasnodar Krai, Alexander Tkachyov, "there was nothing of the kind for the last 70 years". Most of the victims lived in the city of Krymsk, 50 miles (80 km) from Krasnodar and 10 miles (16 km) from Novorossiysk, at the foot of a minor mountain range running along the coast of the Black Sea. Eyewitnesses reported that the flood hit the city around 2 am local time on July 7, 2012 when most residents were asleep. The flood wave reached the height of 7 m (23 ft), submerging many houses to the ceiling and drowning those who could not escape in time. There were also deaths on the coast of the Black Sea in Gelendzhik, a resort, and in Novorossiysk, a port. Russia's government faces growing pressure to install a new emergency warning system and improve weather forecasting after survivors complained that little was done to prevent scores of people from being killed in floods in the south of the country. Survivors said no flood warning had been issued before a huge wave pummeled through Krymsk, the worst-hit town in the Krasnodar region near the Black Sea, early on July 7th.
