Georgia: Deadly Flood In Tbilisi

By

(Civil.Ge) — The authorities have pledged on May 13 to provide shelter to those left homeless as a result of last nights’ flooding in Tbilisi, which killed five people.

A clean-up operation was underway on Sunday with works expected to continue for next several days in the most hit area, which is located in the capital city’s Ortachala district.

The area, involving small streets full of small houses, many of them rundown or slum like properties, was swept through by muddy torrent, which run from hilltops down to he junction of Gorgasali, Gulia and Gulua streets (see on the Google map below).

Four of the victims of the flood, including a woman and her two young children, died after becoming trapped in a small house in that area and the fifth person, an elderly woman, was found dead in a separate location in a nearby neighborhood.
