A stormy night in Kharkiv

Crews work on restoring electricity to hundreds of residents

A storm swept through Kharkiv overnight causing major damage across the city.  

Heavy rain and strong wind toppled about one hundred trees, tore off  several roofs and even flooded the sewage system.  

The cleanup began bright and early this morning. The city workers say restoring electricity to all residents affected by the storm will take at least twenty-four hours. The damage has yet to be estimated.
