Korf (Russian: Корф) is a rural locality (a selo) and a port in Olyutorsky District of Koryak Okrug in Kamchatka Krai, Russia, located on a narrow sand spit opposite Tilichiki. Korf was established in 1925, primarily as a fishing village. In 1989, it had a population of over 3,000 people. On April 21, 2006, Korf was destroyed by the Kamchatka earthquakes. Over eight hundred families were evacuated and the selo was slated to be abandoned. As of 2013, however, Korf has not been officially abolished, and some eighteen people are believed to reside there.
Korf in The Hot WarEdit
Captain Boris Gribkov and his crew were carried to Korf by the destroyer Stalin after they successfully dropped an atomic bomb the Seattle area. They were originally bound for Petropavlovsk, but the United States dropped an atom bomb on that port city.
Upon their arrival, Gribkov and his men were given a hero's welcome.
