Over ten streets were flooded in Vladivostok as typhoon Sanba reached the Russian Far Eastern city bringing there one third of monthly rainfalls norm.

The Sanba emerged on September 10 near the shores of Philippines and before reaching Vladivostok it battered Japan and two Koreas leaving dozens of people homeless and cutting electricity power supplies.

The administration of Vladivostok and the local emergencies services did not report about any casualties and damages, but said that the storm caused a mudslide in the city, which temporarily disrupted a train connection between two local stations.

Schools and kindergartens in Vladivostok, which earlier in the month hosted the 2012 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, continue working as usually, but it is up to parents to decide whether to take their children there during the storm.

According to meteorologists, heavy rains will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday in the region with wind gusts reaching 23-28 meters per second.
