    The amount of snowfall in St. Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city, could be compared with the Genesis Flood, the rector of the Russian State Hydrometeorological University, Lev Karlin, said.

    This year, the winter seems to have brought even more snow, causing several ice-related accidents. However, St. Petersburg authorities say the clean-up effort has been more successful.
