As Friday the 13th’s (bad) luck would have it, a devastating hurricane hit the Sakhalin Region in Russia’s Far East, ripping off roofs, knocking down trees and power lines, cutting electricity for nearly 20,000 residents.

Repair works are now under way on more than 300 sites of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the administrative center of Sakhalin Region, which storm unexpectedly hit late afternoon on Friday.

The hurricane in the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk toppled over 1, 500 trees.

Some of them crushed cars flat, making this Friday the 13th truly unlucky for their owners.

Violent wind gusts of over 75mph (121kph), ripped tiles off roofs.

…dumping roof fragments on roads and cars.

An emergency situation regime was introduced in southern Sakhalin after the hurricane.

Nothing to do with this story as far as I know, however I was wondering something just a moment ago or more accurately a thought came to me.

How long with the increases in seismic activity before we see tidal waves or similar events across the globe?

We have been lucky so far, but how long can that last?

This was NOT a hurricane and who has the audacity to call it one? It was a low pressures system but was by no means at all whatsoever a hurricane. What was it's name then, can you answer that? Hurricane ______? What kind of valid News source calls something it's not? Is this a satire site?

  


Do you constantly troll RT websites to try and smear it. Go back to Fox and Sun for your news if you don't like RT news reports.
