In the evening of July 22 Moscow experienced a heavy rain.

At the daytime weather forecasters warned of bad weather, and predicted the likelihood of damages to trees and power lines.

More than 200 pieces of equipment were on duty in the capital due to a storm warning in order to eliminate consequences of the heavy rain. Nevertheless, part of the streets was flooded, and many kilometres of traffic jams formed in the centre of the city.

Users of social networks began to publish many photos and video of what is happening, complaining about the weather and the poor performance of street drainage.
