The city of Sochi, Russia, is experiencing mass flooding after the Dagomys river has overflowed, as reported on Monday, July 11.

The East Dagomys River in the city of Sochi, Russia has overflowed its banks due to heavy rains and flooded the yards of multi-storey residential buildings and entrances to one of the resort’s districts.

Sirens are reportedly sounding throughout the city. Eyewitnesses report that the stream of water swept away cars on the Batumi highway.

“Cars are under water, in several streets the ground floors of buildings are flooded,” Russian journalists write.

As the publicity blogs specify, locals “have been up all night worrying about their property”. Townspeople are also trying to save cars parked in their yards.

No casualties have yet been reported.

Footage of the flooding has been shared on Twitter, with one user posting:
