    More than a quarter of the monthly rainfall fell in Moscow in an hour

    Published on

    A powerful downpour covered Moscow and flooded several areas of the metropolis at once. Highways in the lowlands were so filled with water that cars could not pass. The rain is accompanied by sharp and strong gusts of wind reaching hurricane values.

    Videos are published on social networks, which show that on many streets of the capital cars drive “knee-deep in water” – it reaches the middle of the doors of cars, sometimes reaching the windows and flooding the engines through the hood.

    On Petrovsky Boulevard, cars parked in the yard were almost half flooded – about a dozen cars in total.

    According to eyewitnesses, streets were flooded in the areas of VDNKh and the Botanical Garden, as well as Tverskaya Street, Patriarch’s Ponds and Arbat. The metro station “Park Kultury” was partially flooded.

    City services in Moscow were put on high alert before the storm hit. The authorities asked the owners of the cafe to strengthen or collapse the summer terraces. Nearly 30 flights have been delayed or canceled at Moscow airports.
