Russian Cyclone Leaves Hospital Without a Roof (Video)

Powerful winds have ripped off the roof of a hospital in a village in Russia's Far East, as a cyclone swept through the region on Tuesday, a news report said.

No injuries were reported during the incident in the village of Vrangel during which about 100 square meters of the hospital was left without a roof, Interfax reported, citing a local Emergency Situations Ministry spokesperson.

The hospital continued its work throughout, the report said.

The incident came amid a heavy snowstorm that hit the Far East on Monday, bringing with it winds with a speed of up to 23 meters per second.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
