A Dozen Dead In Storm Across Russia, Ukraine And Moldova
Moscow, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 28th Nov, 2023) Hurricane force winds, snowfall and flooding that swept parts of southern Russia, Ukraine and Moldova left at least 13 people dead Monday and almost two million without power, authorities said.
Dubbed the 'storm of the century' by Russian media, the violent weather has lashed the southern regions of Dagestan, Krasnodar and Rostov, as well as the occupied Ukrainian territories of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia and Crimea since Sunday.
"Unfortunately, as of now, there are some deaths. The highest number (of casualties) is in the Odesa region -- five people," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
In Vitiazevo near Anapa, the storm caused a large Belize-flagged cargo ship, the "Blue Shark" to run around, the ministry said.
The Caspian Pipeline Consortium said it was suspending the loading of oil and sheltering its tankers due to "extremely unfavourable weather conditions" with winds gusting up to 86 kph (53 mph) and waves up to eight metres (26 feet) high.
"Old-timers can't remember this kind of wind and waves," he said.
