June 14, 2014 – RUSSIA – As Friday the 13th’s (bad) luck would have it, a devastating hurricane hit the Sakhalin Region in Russia’s Far East, ripping off roofs, knocking down trees and power lines, cutting electricity for nearly 20,000 residents. The hurricane in the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk toppled over 1, 500 trees.

Unusual Hailstorm hits Novosibirsk

July 14, 2014 – Weather events in Siberia at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 were eclipsed by a very unusual  mid-summer hailstorm that caused some bathers in the far east Russian city of Novosibirsk, to panic and run for cover. Hail the size of golf balls caught these sun lovers off guard. This is a extremely rare event to happen at this time of the year. The day started out with temperatures well above normal and hitting 99 degrees, when the storm struck.

July Issue 1922

Explorers in Siberia have constantly noted the influence of climate on it’s life. Of these observations, the most notable are those of the famous Russian scientist, Professor A. Midendorff. In his work, “Travels to Northern and southern Siberia,” Part I (St. Petersburg), which constitutes an epoch making event in the study of Siberia, he says: Nowhere in all the world does the climate act in such an unfriendly way towards plant life and animal life, not excluding man as it does in Siberia. Nowhere, but the character of the country preconditioned to such minute details by the climate, and nowhere is the triumph of life over the enmity of the outside world so complete as it is in Siberia.

I don’t no if this is still true today, but these observations took place almost a hundred years ago, with what they are experiencing it could be completely understood.
