100 years before, in November 1824, the strongest flood happened in St. Petersburg. Water rose to 421 centimeters.

This event Pushkin described in the poem "The Bronze Horseman"

The most terrible earthquake in the history of Europe happened 110 years ago in Italy. A 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck the Messina Strait. The cities of Messina, Reggio di Calabria and Palmi were destroyed, killing more than 70,000 people. After an earthquake, a tsunami hit the cities





The first to Messina arrived sailors of the Russian Navy and in a few hours the sailors of the British Royal Navy arrived. In six days they were able to save 2,000 people from under the ruins



In 1912 a monument to Russian sailors was erected in Messina








In 1910 the cruiser Aurora arrived in Messina and he was given awards for officers and sailors of the Russian fleet.



so far on Russian auctions you can find such medals

Sweden is a country with vast stretches of forest. During this summer's heat and drought wild fires destroyed untold square miles of forest even up at polar circle levels. These forests are normally cool and even boggy next to rivers and lakes. stamp of 1975

The summer of 2018 was so warm and dry that Germany suffered huge wild fires in peat bogs!, landscapes normally characterized by being soggy with water. It was almost impossible to control them because the ground will not carry heavy equipment and burns deeply. Stamp pays tribute to volunteer fire fighters, 2002
