Dam failure kills at least 11 at Siberian gold mine
Saturday, 19 October 2019 A dam failure at a gold mine killed at least 11 miners early on Saturday in Siberia, about 160 km (100 miles) south of the city of Krasnoyarsk, the Russian investigative committee has said.
Average temperatures in Siberia were 18 degrees Fahrenheit above average last month. According to HuffPost, the exceptional heat has fanned devastating fires in the Arctic Circle. It's also contributed to a rapid depletion in the ice sea off Russia’s Arctic coast. The World Meteorological Organization says the extended heat is linked to a large 'blocking pressure system.
