During the past three days – Saturday, Sunday and Monday (September 3-5), the teams of the Plovdiv 112 Voluntary Formation actively participated in the fight against the incoming water element, reported Plovdiv24.bg Atanas Dakov, head of voluntary formation. In Karavelovo and Trilistnik, they removed the effects of the flood.

“In these villages, the tidal wave swept away streets, yards, infrastructure, buildings, and vehicles and submerged people’s houses with 1.4-1.5 meters of dirty water, mud and silt. The disaster response included drainage and silt clearance from mud and silt,” said Dakov.

Today (Tuesday, September 6 – Unity Day), for the fourth day in a row, volunteers from the “Plovdiv 112” formation are on the ground and continue to fight the elements.

“These colleagues who were sent last week to participate in an international exercise on the topic of floods in Hungary and who returned to Plovdiv this morning at 3 o’clock” added Atanas Dakov.
