The element washed away Czech Skoda from Russia


Unprecedented weather anomaly, in which the Crimean Peninsula hit, or rather the South Coast of Crimea, led to one interesting consequence, which no one in the country would know and would not know other than the readers of our channel.

A few weeks ago, we were told about how the Czech trolley buses of Skoda were in the Russian Federation, which in previous years were not supplied to Russia. But in turn, their deliveries were sent for several decades to the Union republics: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, etc. After the joining of the Crimea, these trolleybuses were in the territory of the Russian Federation and were sent to conservation.

But what happened next? This is already a script of horror movie. At the beginning of the 20s of June, tropical livne fell on the southern coast of the Crimea. Mountain rivers immediately overflowed and left the shores. And all this water mass straight went to the streets of cities. According to news channels of television, flooded streets of cities were shown.

But where is the Czech Skoda, you ask?

The fact is that the flood in Big Yalta lasted for several days. Water arrived, but with her began to form and village streams. These are stones and dirt. So, on the path of these mud streams, the platform of the conservation of the old Czech trolley buses of Skoda was.

Judging by the photographs from the scene here except the water, the village stream also brought crushed stone. It turned out an elevated blockade. Old trolleybuses, having occurred dam on themselves and became an obstacle to the spread of stone-mud mass on residential neighborhoods of the city.

The root cause of this cataclysm was the natural factor. But in the very recent history of the Crimea there were similar catastrophes that were worn and an anthropogenic trail. The fact is that the peninsula was in the information field of the neighboring state, so the information was not given information about the Alushta village. It was a technogenic accident. At the beginning of the 90s, the peninsula suffered from the strongest droughts. And so that in Alushta there was a steady water supply (then the water was supplied every two days at two o’clock in the afternoon). In 1995, a new reservoir was built under Alushta. And in August 1997, the dam of this reservoir was damaged and the powerful village stream fell into the city.

In this material we will not list all the natural and anthropogenic cataclysms of the southern shore of the Crimea. And we will focus on their consequences. Apparently, to pour out the layer of the dirt-stone layer of the trolleybus housing will not. Enter into operation, these cars are also unlikely perhaps. Although they have no electronics and enough dry drying.

Here, a similar case comes to memory, which occurred in the United States after passing the hurricane «Catherine». Retro tram cars in New Orleans then simply sucked and a few days later they had already worked on the line.

In connection with the Yaltian cataclysm, another long-standing story is remembered, which one is unlikely to remember. In the capital of the Ukrainian SSR, the city of Kiev took one of the most terrible technogenic disasters: the so-called Kurenevskaya tragedy took place at the beginning of the 60s. As a result of the dance breakthrough, huge volumes of clay and mud mass, which accumulated in special sumps, in the form of a seleam flow hit the Kurenevka. In the epicenter of the tragedy there was a local tram depot and its surroundings. The depot was destroyed, more than 50 employees died.
