CONFIRMED: 13 dead, 150 injured after rare hurricane hits central Moscow (VIDEOS, PHOTOS)

At least 13 people have died, and over 150 have been hospitalized, including 22 children, when a severe thunderstorm hit the Russian capital Monday, health officials say.

13 Muscovites have lost their lives, with over 400 trees toppled, and more than 150 people seeking medical help, including 22 children, after what Russians are calling a ‘hurricane’ or in Russian ‘ураган’. Reports say that electrical cables were damaged as Moscow was lashed with high winds, hail and torrential rain.

The winds of up to 110 km/h (70 mph) were described by meteorologists as extremely rare for the city, and caused structural damage to buildings.

With a death toll of 13 – this is the deadliest storm Moscow has seen for more than 100 years.

The city’s investigative committee said that “hurricane winds” had caused trees to fall in various parts of the city, killing five pedestrians.

An elderly man was also killed at a bus stop, it said. TASS news agency says that 150 people have been injured. Two people were killed after a tree fell onto their summer house, Interfax reported.

I’m afraid I know how American fundamentalist preachers will characterize this storm to their congregations. They’ll call it “God’s judgement on Russia.”

Such a sad loss of life. Russia has said they are changing from the dollar and have withdrawn from the corrupt banking system so would not be surprised if America is not responsible for using HAARP on them at all

Straight-line winds perhaps with some imbedded F-0 tornadoes. We had something similar in St. Paul, MN over Memorial Day weekend of 1998 which was called a Derecho. Here is a news item on the weather phenomenon known as a Derecho. Two blocks from where I was living at the time, over off of West 7th St and Randolph we were hit by an F-0 tornado that tore down a bunch of trees and destroyed some garages. ripped a few roofs off, as well as tipped several truck trailers over at the Schmidt’s Brewery there. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/misc/AbtDerechos/casepages/may30-311998page.htm Here is a chart on… Read more »
