This footage shows the moment a two-storey building collapses in a Russian Black Sea resort city after a fierce hurricane.
The incident took place in the village of Loo, in the Lazarevsky district, in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, Russia, on 27th November.
In the footage, the two-storey building can be seen with cracks all over it before suddenly collapsing as eyewitnesses film the moment.
Residents had evacuated the building in advance, according to reports.
The press service of the Regional Emergency Department said: “The building is partially damaged. There are no casualties.”
Local media reports claimed the collapse resulted from a hurricane and storm on the Black Sea coast.
However, the prosecutor’s office is investigating.
This incident is not isolated, as large waves have also swept the seafront in Sochi, carrying cars away and disturbing buildings, according to reports.
Some Black Sea resorts have experienced power outages due to the storms in the region.
According to reports from Russia’s Ministry of Energy, about 1.9 million people were affected by power cuts due to the storms in the southern Russian regions of Dagestan, Krasnodar, and Rostov, as well as the occupied Ukrainian territories of Crimea, Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk, and Zaporizhia.
At least three people have reportedly died during the storm, including one person each in Sochi, the Russian-held Crimean Peninsula, and on board a vessel in the Kerch Strait, which separates the Russian mainland from Crimea, according to reports.
