Hundred of hectares of land remain still underwater all over Albania due to the heavy rainfall of these last days.
The northern district of Shkodra remains one of the most problematic areas. The rainfall and snow melting led to rivers overflow and the isolation of many villages.
The Albanian Armed Forces (AAF) troops intervened with boats and trucks evacuating the inhabitants from the flooded areas.
Meantime the water supply to Obot village has been temporarily interrupted because the aqueduct is currently underwater. Some 800 inhabitants which are currently isolated without drinking water launched a distress call to the local authorities to intervene for an immediate solution of this problem.
