Heavy rain, hail, downpour hits Kyiv again

19:09, 16 August 2018

Hail, downpour and thunderstorm covered Kyiv at around 3 a.m. Wind gusts ripped the billboards off the buildings and toppled the trees. Branches are lying on the streets. Podil district and central parts of the city were flooded completely.

Khreshchatyk street was under water. The flood washed paving stones of the Andriyivskyy Descent, leaving the streets in dirt and bricks. The cars had to bypass the flooded streets. The traffic was closed, while the rescuers were pumping up water. Underground walkways were flooded as well.
