Two people were killed after heavy rains hit southern Ukraine's Odessa region over the weekend, a local official said Monday, according to Xinhua.

The ensuing floods drowned some 4,000 farm animals and poultry and destroyed or severely damaged more than 450 houses, causing an estimated loss of 21 million U.S. dollars, an official of the press service of Odessa regional administration told Xinhua.

Around 600 residents have been evacuated in central Odessa, the worst-hit region.
