Power supply to flood-hit northeastern Bulgaria is returning to normal, according to Radoslav Tsvetkov from power distributor Energo-Pro.

In a Friday interview for the Bulgarian National Radio (BNR), Tsvetkov made clear that some 7400 customers in Varna, Dobrich and Gorna Oryahovitsa still had no electricity.

He noted that the major portion of the Asparuhovo district of Varna was expected to have its power supply restored by the end of the day on Friday.

Tsvetkov said that the number of Varna-based customers without electricity had been reduced from 16 000 by 9 am on Friday to the current rate of slightly over 2100.

He said that slightly over 5000 customers of the power distributor in Dobrich, as well as 300 customers in Gorna Oryahovitsa, still had no electricity.

The heavy rain which hit the region on Thursday claimed at least 12 lives, including two children.

The city of Varna reported 10 victims and the city of Dobrich 2, with 3 people still missing, according to Interior Minister Tsvetlin Yovchev.
