Heavy Rain Floods Rustavi Streets

Heavy rain which started last night also created problems in the town of Rustavi, flooding the streets and damaging infrastructure.

As reported, the rain was so intense that the water drainage systems became overwhelmed and the Emergency Management Service employees had to work all night to pump the water and clean the streets.

Strong rain also flooded Rustavi on June 2.

Bad weather hit Natakhtari, which was bombarded with strong hail for several minutes.

Hail also hit two villages in Gori, destroying crops and orchards and flooding yards of the houses.

In Tbilisi, the Emergency Management Service says they received 153 calls during the night from citizens asking for help. The districts affated the most by the rain in Tbilisi are Gldani, Dighomi and Nadzalavedi.
