Sanba Typhoon Floods Vladivostok

Over one monthly rainfalls norm was brought to Russia's Far East, as typhoon Sanba reached the region. Several streets in the city of Vladivostok were flooded, public transport was complicated.

      The Sanba emerged on September 10 near the shores of Philippines. Then it came to Japan and two Koreas, bringing big destruction, leaving dozens of people homeless and cutting electricity power supplies. Sanba reached Russia's Far East weakened but still dangerous.

      Vladivostok's local authorities did not report about any casualties and damages, but said that the typhoon caused a mudslide in the city, which temporarily disrupted a train connection between local stations.

      Schools and kindergartens in Vladivostok continue their work, but parents can decide if to bring their children there during the storm or not.

      According to meteorologists, heavy rains will continue for the next couple of days with wind gusts reaching 23-28 meters per second.
