Three apartment buildings came down in Tbilisi

2010-04-27 11:37

Last night, three apartment buildings came down in Tbilisi, GeorgiaTimes correspondent reports. The incidents happened in three different regions of the capital.


In all the three cases, it was the walls of the buildings in disrepair that came down. Fortunately, none of the residents suffered.

The rescue team that arrived at the scene helped clear the territory of the pieces. The regional administration officials promised the residents to provide them with alternative dwellings in the near future.

The buildings in disrepair come down in Tbilisi after each heavy rain. The housing stock of the Georgian capital was severely damaged during the April earthquake in 2002. The experts advised the government to urgently pull down the buildings of the third damage category and start enforcing the buildings of the second damage category, which, otherwise, will pass to the third category. However, neither the previous, nor the current authorities seem to be listening to the experts' advice.
