"I can't stop thinking about this tragedy with tears on my yeys... A good friend of mine lost her parents who lived in Krymsk town and son, 26 y.o, a talented poet and musician... They died within minutes when a huge 7 meters high wave came at night after 1 am when everybody was asleep... The officials did absolutely nothing to wake the people up, they did not give them even a little chance, those 3-5 minutes they might needed to escape from the flood. There were no signals, or sirens, to warn the people... absolutely nothing! And now they lie to us from the TV news, telling about 170 killed people... No way! The witnesses are telling about hundreds of corps in the houses and in the streets and a few thousands of missing people... "

At the Council of Deputies, listening to rumours, repeated, exasperated muffled - If you're starting from destruction, at the end of repeated devastation.

Are we beasts which, to see it as an occasion for anger? Here to grieve, thinking together, hanging his head, silent ... But you this - a reason for revenge volunteers and all printing! razushenya And the face of the dust. In the face of poverty and resentment Again sight of your fear and helplessness of the whole pyramid. Again lies and lack of communication, And the silence of the high pride. And under a layer of debris and dirt, as always The truth is buried. Themselves again save yourself the same Pursuing feed and investigation ... Understand true even fact that it is over the Crimea. beysya However, the truth can not hide. Not soften Sovereign faces. And what we ought Krymsk to have ended yet? Dmitry Bykov
Russia Krymsk Flood Compilation, July 2012, Death Toll: 172 (रूस बाढ़ संकलन)
The equivalent of five months of rain fell overnight in some southern parts of the country according to the Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia.
172 people died during the floods, and Russian police said the floods damaged the homes of nearly 13,000 people.
According to the governor of Krasnodar Krai, Alexander Tkachyov, "there was nothing of the kind for the last 70 years".
Most of the victims lived in the city of Krymsk, 50 miles (80 km) from Krasnodar and 10 miles (16 km) from Novorossiysk, at the foot of a minor mountain range running along the coast of the Black Sea. Eyewitnesses reported that the flood hit the city around 2 a.m. local time on July 7, 2012 when most residents were asleep. The flood wave reached the height of 7 m (23 ft), submerging many houses to the ceiling and drowning those who could not escape in time. There were also deaths on the coast of the Black Sea in Gelendzhik, a resort, and in Novorossiysk, a port.
Russia's government faces growing pressure to install a new emergency warning system and improve weather forecasting after survivors complained that little was done to prevent scores of people from being killed in floods in the south of the country.
Survivors said no flood warning had been issued before a huge wave pummeled through Krymsk, the worst-hit town in the Krasnodar region near the Black Sea, early on July 7th.
