International Charter activated for floods in Russia

The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated on 10 July 2012 by the US Geological Survey (USGS) on behalf of ROSCOSMOS/EMERCOM for the torrential flooding of Krasnodar region, Russia. On Saturday, 7 July 2012, torrential rains swept the Southern Russian Krasnodar region, killing 144 people, officials confirm. A foot of rain dropped in the Black Sea region forcing several residents to scramble out of their beds seeking refuge on trees and rooftops.
