Typhoon Sanba batters Russia's Far East

Powerful typhoon Sanba continues to batter Russia's Far Eastern city of Vladivostok. The typhoon has brought a monthly norm of precipitation, flooded streets and blocked many highways.

The rains were especially strong in the Lazovsky and Olginsky districts of the city. Monday saw about 21 millimeters of rain in Vladivostok, while on Tuesday night the level went up to 87 millimeters, said RIA PrimaMedia. The winds were as strong as 18 meters per second on the continent and 27 meters per second on the coast.

During the night, several villages on the outskirts of the city were left without power, but the supplies of electricity were restored by the morning. The typhoon caused two landslides that blocked the new highway that had been built for the APEC summit, adds Free Press. Currently, the traffic on the highway is blocked, but it is scheduled to resume already on September 18.
