Scores killed in Russia flooding


Moscow (CNN) — At least 105 people have died as floodwaters surge through southern Russia’s Krasnodar region, Russia’s Interior Ministry said Saturday.
Of those killed, 94 are in the Krymsk district, nine in Gelendzhik district and two in the Black Sea port of Novorossiisk, the ministry said.
The flash floods follow heavy rains in the area since Friday.
The Krymsk district is a mostly rural area with many one-storey homes, Russia’s state news agency Itar-Tass reported.

Flood waters rose 7 meters (23 feet) overnight in Krymsk, the news agency said, flooding homes while most people were still asleep. Others were rescued by police after seeking refuge on roofs and in trees, it said.
The death toll has climbed steadily through the day as the waters have gradually subsided, allowing police to find more bodies in flooded buildings in Krymsk.
Television footage from the Krasnodar region showed scenes of flooded streets, stranded vehicles and people wading through torrents of knee-deep muddy water outside homes.
The state-run Ria Novosti news agency said dozens of passenger trains have been diverted in the region as the water level remains 19 inches above the tracks.
Krasnodar also suffered deadly flooding in October 2010, when torrential rains in mountainous areas caused rivers to overflow, flooding villages nearby.
