Heavy rains have caused blackouts in the southern Russian region of Crimea, leaving dozens of towns and villages without power, the Energy Ministry has said.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Torrential rains have been pounding the Black Sea peninsula since late afternoon, shutting parts of a regional power grid run by the Krymenergo utility firm. Emergency crews are working to restore power supply.

"Households in 27 settlements have been left without electricity (around 10,700 people)," the ministry said in a statement issued Friday.

Separately, the regional emergencies ministry has told Sputnik that a mudslide has swept away and overturned dozens of cars on a road near the southern town of Sudak. There were no casualties.
