Traffic on the federal highway A-158 "Prokhladny-Baksan-Azau" was blocked in Kabardino-Balkaria due to the mudflow descending on the roadway in the Elbrus region.

As reported in the Main Directorate of EMERCOM of Russia in the region, the mudflow was carried out on 88 km of the highway. The traffic had to be blocked, but no one was hurt. Now an operational group of rescuers and traffic police units are on duty at the site. The road services have started clearing the roadway. It is planned to complete the restoration work in the first half of the day.

Recall that the mudflows were the result of torrential rains in the Crimea, which began on July 4. Because of them, they had to evacuate from dangerous areas about 200 people.
