From the EU's support for tackling the disaster, our country first reacted with an immediate delivery of what is most needed for people to deal with such situations, the report said. The Director of the General Directorate "Fire Safety and Protection of the Population" Commissioner Nikolay Nikolov has delivered the bulk of the delivery in the presence of the Bulgarian Consul and representatives of our embassy in Tirana.
It was accomplished with two flights on the Spartan Air Force. Thousands of families are affected by the floods in Albania in the torrential rains of the Balkan Peninsula. The floods have destroyed about 30 bridge facilities, the southernmost part of the country being the worst hit.
