As has been reported earlier, the ecological disaster threatens the village of Velistsikhe of Gurdzhaanski region of Georgia. As the Georgian TV companies reported this morning, the settlement is in danger of being fully flooded.
This night the rescuers evacuated about 600 families from Velistsikhe. The people were accommodated in their relatives' dwellings.
Fire-fighting crews, accident assistant squads and police squads have been mobilized on site; the heads of the Interior Ministry, Ministry of Justice, Regional Development, Infrastructure and Environmental Protection also arrived in the distressed village.
As a result of downpour the water level in the water basin located in the neighboring village of Cheremi raised drastically; the water damaged the protection embankments, which led to the threat of the village flooding.
