BBC resources state that on the morning of the 8th of September, a river burst its banks and water then cut the power supply at the hospital in the town of Tula. 

Some of the victims were Covid-19 patients who were being treated with oxygen therapy, local media reports. 

Rescuers evacuated about 40 patients. Meanwhile, a boat transporting the state governor sank in the river. The ambulance was rushed to assist the governor, locals state “he made it out safe and sound”. The army was deployed to provide assistance to rescue teams dealing with the disaster.
