Typhoon Fitow Causes Flood in Russias Far East

Operative groups of the Ministry of Emergency Situations still have been liquidating the aftermath of typhoon Fitow that hit the Russian Far East coastland on September 7. It is known that the typhoon has flooded 4 local villages populated by over 2000 people. Within 24 hours a monthly amount of rains fell in the region and made several rivers spill over banks.
      Heavy rains and strong winds broke functioning of the power lines, washed out the roads and bridges, several districts of the coastland were flooded, and the local population evacuated.
      Now the situation has been improving, the rains have stopped, and the water is leaving the populated localities. The emergency situation is said to have ended, electricity supply has been resumed, and the people have started returning home. However, the rescue workers continue monitoring the districts that were damaged by the flood.
