Adjara under oppression of natural disaster2013-03-27 13:29
Element was raging over Georgia for two days. The strong wind that rose on March 23, especially raged on the night of the March 24. Power lines were damaged causing some parts of the country plunged into darkness. And only after the restoration of power, it became apparent that the damage of the disaster was enormous.
Adjara has suffered most of the damage. There are even human victims. The storm took the life of a lonely fisherman on the coast of Batumi. Batumi Boulevard and waterfront can be recognized only by the number of palm trees. The entire coastal zone in Kobuleti, Batumi and Ureki was inundated with mud, brought in from the sea. Murman Dumbadze, majoritarian MP from the "Georgian Dream" in Adjara, speaking about the origin of the mud, mentions the wastes of the HPP, located on the Turkish side. The cleaning of the coastal strip of Batumi and Kobuleti has already begun. There was established local emergency headquarters for the disaster relief.
300 people who are engaged in cleaning the shoreline were mobilized to Adjara for this purpose. Yesterday Energy Minister Kakha Kaladze visited the region. He has two aims - to check power lines and to head the urgently created emergency headquarters. The extent of damage caused by the elements in Kobuleti and Batumi will be estimated with the participation of president of the government of Adjara Archil Habadze. He argues that all necessary equipment was mobilized, the problem with the supply of electricity is resolved, gas pipes in Kobuleti are repaired. It remains only to solve the problem of water supply.
Not only the Black Sea coast and the western region of Georgia have suffered from the powerful hurricane. Strong winds have caused damage in the capital. Gori has also suffered. Disaster has mainly affected the rooftops. Some were demolished completely. So, for example, roofing of a five-story building has fallen on Stalin's wagon at the museum - though it wasn't damaged at all. Prime Minister of Georgia Bidzina Ivanishvili visited Gori. He has learned details of the destruction directly from the victims. Residents of Gori explained that it all had happened in a matter of minutes. Just 10 minutes was enough to destroy the roofs of private homes and apartment buildings, and to leave the city without gas and water.
Prime Minister drew attention to the houses that seemed non-residential, and asked if there were permanent residents. Gori residents explained that the roofs had perished long ago, and they had to leave homes.
