After the scorching heat, as the synoptic experts warned, the temperature dropped.The breeze of fresh air was followed by heavy rainfall in the entire territory. The rainfall, which came after a long period of drought and tropical temperatures, was seen as a "miracle" from the sky.
On the other side only a few minutes of heavy rain and strong winds were sufficient to damage the country's power grid. A number of Tirana neighborhoods suffered power interruption due to the damages in the electrical wires.
Meantime the coastal area of Divjaka continues to experience energy absence due to the collapse of some electric poles due to the strong winds. Some trees also fell down cutting the electrical wires.
Luckily no one was injured by the fallen trees and electrical poles. The Electricity Power Distribution Operator (OSHEE) technical staff is currently working to restore energy in these areas.
