Several houses were washed away by flooding after a dam collapsed in Ruza City, about 100 km (62 miles) west of Moscow, Russia, on July 8, 2020. 

Three buildings were swept away, and another 29 were inundated in the city, the local emergency services said. Two roads were also completely destroyed.

According to Moscow region vice governor Igor Trescov, 52 residents whose houses were damaged have been relocated.

The administration said a dirt road that was used as an artificial dam collapsed due to heavy downpours. No injuries were reported.
