MOSCOW | Flash floods kill 6 in southern Russia; 1 missing

MOSCOW — Russian investigators say at least six people have died in flash floods in the country’s south.

The Investigative Committee said in a statement on Friday that six people died in Russia’s Krasnodar region when torrential rains and flash floods hit the area on Wednesday. One more person is believed to be missing.

More than 20 trains running along the Black Sea coast have been delayed after a section of a railroad bridge collapse, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded at nearby stations. Emergency officials offered temporary accommodation and food to the passengers.
