Description of the Event

On Saturday, torrential rains swept the Southern Russian Krasnodar region, killing 144 people, officials confirm.

A foot of rain dropped in the Black Sea region forcing several residents to scramble out of their beds seeking refuge on trees and rooftops.

Intense rains have caused panic, there is no electricity and shops have been closed. Several survivors are being evacuated from the area.

Emergency and rescue operations are under way, and talks are taking place between emergency and government officials. The worst-hit town of Krymsk is of prime concern.

Monday has been recognised as a day of mourning, this is the worst flooding seen by Russians.
