It has been dubbed Russia’s first ever “city tornado.”
A twister has brought terror to Blagoveshchensk in the country’s far east, near the Chinese border. It killed one person, injured 28 more and caused up to two million euros of damage.
The tornado damaged electric power lines and caused a blackout which left about 10,000 people without electricity.
The region’s governor is promising financial aid to those whose property was damaged by the tornado.
