Heavy rain flooded the subway and the Memorial to Victims of Holodomor
Downpour in the capital did not stop for days. And since the state of gutters and livnevok in a very poor, they quickly turned the capital into a sea.
Obolon, Pechersk Borshchagovka Darnitsa drivers and their cars simply drowned in dimensionless puddles. Some machines have lost license plate — they just breaks the flow. Aside Pushcha-Voditsa trams did not go more than a day — a powerful surge of water damaged rails. A subway station "Heroes of Dnepr" Obolon almost flooded with water. In the passage leading to the subway, people hardly moved on this river about a meter deep. But until the water has not reached the station.
A candle is hollow — because will serve as a drain pipe, where rainwater from getting inside the complex.
On Sunday the rain poured even Memorial Holodomor (the very creation of Victor Yushchenko, who has invested $ 17 million and built in a record four months).
— Has filled the main hall of the museum — Hall of memory. After stele "candles" — water poured on the floor.

Meanwhile, forecasters predict that heavy long rains in Kiev will not stop even for a week.
Ukraine is becoming a "Alley tornado"
Tornadoes in our country have become commonplace — only from June 13 of these natural phenomena reported in at least seven different areas. Including the powerful hurricane that swept across the country over the weekend.
Meteorologists do not call tornadoes "anomaly that happens once in a hundred years." Blame — Global Warming: Climate change, every summer — hotter than the previous one. And the consequences were not slow to manifest. This summer begins in the Crimea two anomalous "hail", and the middle of June, "offered" to Ukraine, a series of tornadoes.
It all started the 12th: funnel appeared from the clouds in Simferopol, but, fortunately, the land was not affected. Tornado passed over the edge of town and sleeping directly above the body Brewery. It was a very dangerous pass — used in the production of ammonia, and it leaks into the atmosphere could cause serious harm to people.
The same day, a more powerful funnel uprooted trees Kobelyaki Poltava region. June 13 — down on the Sea of Azov coast of Kerch. June 14 tornado swept like matchboxes stalls at the market in Uzhhorod. The next day the disaster hit the Zaporozhye region — where the hurricane left without electricity and a half thousand homes. A June 19 tornado returned to the Crimea, where the roof ripped off dozens of houses in the village of stone fruit. And over the weekend tornado hit the surrounding area of Kerch again. Not a lot in a short period of time? We are not in America, which is known for its "Tornado Alley" — the band through the central states that are facing the cold air from Canada and warm in Mexico, producing hundreds of deadly vortex every summer.
— Blame — weather pendulum, when the hot weather for next cyclone, carrying a sharp drop in air temperature of 15-20 degrees — told "KP" head of sector of medium-and long-term forecasts Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Natalia shin. — On the border of the front produced thunderstorms, the most powerful of which can be and tornadoes and hail.
Predict exactly where and when possible tornadoes, scientists still do not know how: a tornado is very transient, a rare vortex lives longer than 15 minutes. So it is possible that they are happening in Ukraine is much more, they're just no one caught my eye, or someone had seen, but not thought to tell meteorologists. It's in the U.S. developed a mechanism study of anomalies: Volunteers saw a whirlwind, immediately call the weather service. These messages, by the way, helps forecast and warning the population.
Lovers storm drove the ledge rock on all night
Ignoring the storm warning, 40-year-old resident of Balaclava and her 41-year-old boyfriend, retired for a few days with a tent in the grotto. There they took the skiff, and was not able to take back — up 5-point storm. Waves raged more and more, and look to flood the cave. Man called rescuers, and then with a friend they have to climb on the rocks — it was the only chance to escape. Spent the whole night, frantically clinging to the cliff where the waves did not reach them. Only at dawn found them rescuers heard over the roar of the waves and wind their calls for help. Both escaped with slight shock and hypothermia.
