Damage from a hurricane that left five people, injured in Russia's Far East, has been assessed at 2.25 million rubles
Damage from a hurricane that left five people, including an eight-year-old child, injured in Russia's Far East, has been assessed at 2.25 million rubles ($86,000), a local emergencies ministry spokesman said Wednesday. The hurricane hit the Amur Region late Monday. Wind gusts of up to 28 meters (90 feet) per second uprooted trees, blocking roads, tore off roofs and downed transmission lines. Over a thousand people and 125 vehicles are involved in relief operations. Some 140,000 people still remain without electricity. Power supplies are expected to be resumed later in the day, although some private households will get electricity only by the end of the week. The storm damaged several districts, including three cities - Blagoveshchensk, Belogorsk and Raichikhinsk in the south of the region, and left 436,000 people without water and power.
