Over 1000 People in Bulgaria’s Flood-Hit Mizia to Move to Caravans
A total of 1165 people, or 1/3 of the population of the flood-hit northwestern town of Mizia, will have to use temporary caravan accommodation.
According to a report on the damage caused by the flood in early August, which claimed two lives, a total of 23 houses collapsed and 50 houses are about to fall apart.
A total of 93 houses survived the flood wave but their household effects were destroyed, and 206 houses need major repairs, according to reports of 24 Hours daily.
Some two weeks after the flood, the lower parts of the northwestern Bulgarian town are still under water and are only accessible by boat.
The town needs volunteers to help with the post-flood recovery activities and freight vehicles to clear the site of bulky waste.
The streets of Mizia are lined with large heaps of destroyed furniture, which is being taken away by six trucks and three loaders provided by the municipality.
Local authorities have called for more vehicles to fast-track the clear-up activities.
