    Residents have been evacuated from an apartment building in St. Petersburg following a loud clap that local authorities told Sputnik on Thursday did not lead to any casualties.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A municipal emergencies service spokeswoman said earlier that "there was a clap, part of the lining collapsed, an evacuation is underway."

    "People did not suffer when part of the brickwork collapsed, one car was damaged," a source with the Russian Emergencies Ministry's northwestern regional center said.
