People carried a stream, saved passers-by: After a heavy rain Gelendzhik went under water
After a heavy Saturday rain, a significant part of Gelendzhik went under water. On the streets, people carried streams of water towards the sea, drowning people were saved by random passers-by. Meanwhile, a real swim was organized on the embankment.
According to Krasnodar Media, the water level in some streets rose to 70 cm, streams of water carried furniture from summer cafes and unlucky passers-by towards the sea. A video was published on NTV's Twitter channel, in which water carries a complete woman, random passers-by save her.
On the central city embankment, the water level rose so much that you could only swim along it. A video of the impromptu swim was published in the public "Tupodar Krasnodar".
Despite the shocking footage, the Gelendzhik administration issued a statement that "utilities were ready for weather surprises" - that is, they quickly washed the embankment after the water subsided. The issue of the operation of storm sewers was not raised in a statement.
It is worth noting that floods after any more or less rain are also characteristic of the regional capital. In social networks, videos regularly appear of streets leaving under water. The water level rises to the windows of passenger cars, not only in the Musical microdistrict, known for its chaotic buildings, but also in the center of Krasnodar - for example, at the intersection of two main roads, Krasnaya and Severnaya. Subscribers of the “Help the city” public claim that “fake rain showers” are common in Krasnodar — when there are hatches and gratings, but water does not leave them. Such structures appear to facilitate the commissioning of construction projects.
