Rain and death toll rises in Krasnodar region

Yesterday in the Mendeleyev Journal we reported over 78 deaths from flooding in the southern Russian region of Krasnodar. Later we revised the number to 90, then over 100. After dark on Friday a seven-foot wave swept down from a mountain upon unsuspecting residents as heavy rain threatened dam levies.

Today the death count has risen to 153 and the rain continues.
