Storm kills four in west Ukraine

LVOV, June 23 (RIA Novosti) - Four people were killed in a storm that swept through the western Ukrainian city of Lvov on Monday, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Ministry for Emergency Situations said.

Strong winds blew down trees, damaging parked cars and devastating a historic municipal cemetery, while heavy rains flooded some streets under 30 cm (12 inches) of water.

In the aftermath of the storm, many of the city's 735,000 people were left without electricity and cellular telephone communications were disrupted.

Lvov's historic city center is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List and the city itself celebrated the 750th anniversary of its founding last September.
