MOSCOW (Reuters) – Floods have killed at least six people near Russia’s southern Black Sea coast, Interfax and other news agencies reported on Friday.

At least one other person was still missing after floodwaters, unleashed by torrential rain on Wednesday, hit more than a dozen towns and settlements near the coastal city of Tuapse, Interfax added.

“Six people were found during a search operation,” an Emergency Ministry official told the agency.
