Emergency declared, bridges down after heavy rain hits villages in Vidin area in Bulgaria

A state of emergency has been declared in the municipality of Ruzhintsi in Bulgaria after torrential rain inundated the area, also flooding villages in the Vidin area, damaging bridges, private property and roads.

The emergency was announced after an April 24 special meeting at Ruzhintsi municipal headquarters of the crisis staff headed by Vidin deputy regional governor Nikolai Todorov.

Overnight, about 60 people were evacuated after the heavy rain in recent days flooded the villages of Gyurgich and Pleshivets.


While Bulgaria’s Interior Ministry said that there had been no serious damage, public broadcaster Bulgarian National Television reported that the mayors of the affected villages said that a house had been destroyed, yards flooded, cars deluged and bridges had collapsed.

  • Separate reports said that 10 bridges had been destroyed in the Ruzhintsi area because of the pouring rain that began in the area on April 18 and was continuing on April 24.

  • The bridges that were destroyed were in the villages of Ruzhintsi, Byalo Pove, Drenovets, Pleshivets, Roglets and Drazhintsi.

A disaster was declared in Chouprene Municipality on April 20 after the Gorni Lom River overflowed its banks.

  • Overflowing dams flooded dozens of houses in Vidin overnight, bTV reported.

In pics: bridge collapse accident site in central China (VIDEO 1/2/13)

A part of the expressway viaduct collapsed on Friday morning in an explosion of a truck-load of fireworks. Ten people died and 11 others were injured in the accident. The expressway viaduct, with bidirectional four lanes, opened to traffic in 2001 after three years of construction. The last test in 2011 revealed no safety risks. Li Qiang, chief engineer of Henan Provincial Transportation Department, said that the bridge had passed biennially and monthly inspections and was up to the standards of the national expressway viaduct.


In face of the public concerns, Wang Baixing, China's renowned bomb-disposal expert, said the power of the blast on the truck that carried fireworks and firecrackers was equivalent to one ton of explosive and explained that the explosion occurred on special part of the viaduct, blowing off the upper structure of the bridge and pulling down one of its piers.
