The entire country has been experiencing a difficult situation since last night due to the heavy rainfalls which caused inundations in many areas. The rivers burst the banks flooding the road axes while many citizens were blocked inside their house or cars and urgently asked for help by the authorities.
The Albanian Armed Forces (AAF) troops operated incessantly managing to evacuate some 315 citizens preventing the loss of any human life.
Meantime the situation remains highly problematic in Southern Albania where the rivers have burst the banks flooding the roads completely blocking vehicles circulation. Some 100 AAF effectives along with a number of vehicles have been urgently deployed in those areas to cope with this difficult situation.
The main objective is to evacuate the citizens endangered by the water's increasing level and prevent situation escalation.
