Two villages of Elbasan district are currently isolated due to a massive landslide while a number of houses face risk of collapse. The heavy rainfalls of the recent days worsened this problematic situation that goes on in this area since many years.
The Socialist Party (SP) Parliamentary Group chairman, Taulant Balla addressed an appeal on Thursday to these villages' inhabitants urging them to leave the area without further delays in order to prevent any loss of human lives.
"I urge every inhabitant to leave the area as soon as possible because the situation may get worst any time now. All necessary measures will be taken by the Civil Emergencies to provide them a shelter and everything else that might be needed," said Balla.
He also declared that a verification process of the damages caused by the landslide will be conducted in order to enable inhabitants' indemnification as soon as possible.
