Flood risk from rain, Peleshi: Structures on standby
Over the next three days our country will be affected by moderate rainfall. This is what the Minister of Defense Niko Peleshi said for the media, who said that we are already in the season of floods, but all structures are ready to react in time and to keep the situation under control.
"In the next two or three days we expect moderate intensity in the northern and southwestern part of the country. To the north is the Drini cascade which when the rains continue long even when the waters reach the maximum value of the lakes they threaten and risk big floods. In the southwest we have the Vjosa river, it is a wild river in case of heavy rainfall it risks coming out of bed. Today we have reserve levels in the Drini cascade, in Lake Fierza it is almost 25 meters below the peak level, there are reservations for several days of rain, what will happen later we will be in communication. These 2-3 days we will not have increased flooding due to forced discharges as happens in some cases.
We enter the difficult season of floods, we enter with reserve. There will be rain in the southwestern part of the Vjosa River, in the part of Greece where the rainfall is heavy for several days in a row, they result in an increase in the level of the Mifol Bridge, we can have an exit if there will be an intensity of up. All the structures are in the direction of the National Civil Protection Agency, they are ready, this is how the prefectures should be, I call on everyone to be ready. We do not expect in this rain frenzy, big floods, in the northern area we have depressive areas such as the Obot area which with or without lake discharge is the first area that risks flooding only because of rainfall and not because of discharges. There is snowfall but ARA is on standby, we have no problems on any road axis in terms of readiness ",
