Water caught unawares suburban residents so that no one of them could not save from his belongings. Even chickens that were the administration of the Imperial gardening, and they all died. Losses Elaginsky gardens were more than 300,000 rubles. I floated in the water and Restaurant "Slavyanka" On this night. All its terrace, bowling alley and billiard room were flooded. Run out on the streets and the public would find the same picture. For a place in the coach fought cabs it was not at all. The audience of "Aquarium" where on that fateful night was a benefit of its director, escaped from the water a very original way. Late pedestrians had a long wander through the back alleys, looking for dry places. But they are nowhere to be found! Then a brave off their shoes and pants, threw them behind his back, and take a trip across the sea, "like on dry land."
