A flood and storm hit Saratov.

Lightning flashes over the city, some streets have gone under water, hurricane winds are blowing away trees - people are moving almost by swimming. Local residents told SHOT that the city was seriously flooded after heavy rains: some people were walking through the streets in waist-deep water, while others were being carried away by stormy streams directly onto the roadway. On Marina Raskova Street, lightning struck the wires - several houses were cut off from electricity. Eyewitnesses also claim that the discharge hit a trolleybus next to the local station.
