  • [01] Farmland flooded as Evros River overflows

  • [01] Farmland flooded as Evros River overflows

    Some 1,500 stremma of cultivated farmland were flooded on Saturday in Didimoteichos, when a small section of embankment collapsed due to overflow of the Evros river.

    According to Civil Protection director for the Eastern Macedonia-Thrace region Lazaros Tsakmakidis, the collapse of the embankment in the Psathades area resulted from the increased quantity of water flowing into the Evros river from the Erythropotamos tributary, following several days of heavy rainfall in the area.

    Tsakmakidis said a 40 meter rift occurred in the embankment, at a distance of about 500 meters from anti-flooding works carried out during last year's winter season, adding that because of last year's works, the rift caused on Saturday was small, thus containing the damage to a minimum in comparison with previous years.

    He said the Region's technical services were working overtime to create outlets for the swelling waters of the Evros river.

    Meanwhile, the Evros river waters had reached a level of 5.40 meters at the Pythio measuring station on Saturday. The alert level is 5.70 meters.
