Putin will say the Syrian rebels did it

Wall Street Journal -- Unusually heavy rains around the Russian city of Sochi caused mudslides and floods to wash over a number of roads in the area where the 2014 Winter Olympics Games is set to be held. Emergency sirens blared in the city Tuesday followed by a voice message warning residents that the Sochi River could overflow its banks, according to a statement on the city administration’s website. It warned that the volume of water had risen to “dangerous levels,” threatening to overcome one of Sochi’s bridges.
