The flooding in southern Russia not only killed over 150 people but it has devastated tourism along the popular Black Sea coast in the Krasnodar region. Crews are trying their best to restore the travel networks in the region and to salvage at least some of the remaining holiday season.
Many trains into the region have been cancelled. Many families going on holiday with their children have ended up stranded as the railway lines are cut near the port of Novorossiysk. In some areas power is still out. Even mobile phone reception is out in some areas. Internet access too is either intermittent or does not even exist.
There is a high concentration of children's camps in the region. Some had to be evacuated and others are struggling to deal with the floods. Sewage leaks have been a problem in both Novorossyisk and Gelendzhik.. Fresh water and even food is in short supply. Local businesses are doing their best to salvage some of their revenue and provide some semblance of a holiday for tourists. For more see this article.
