Wastelands have replaced the gardens in the area and there are tons of waste, tipped cars, cut power lines, destructed bridges and roads. As usual, misfortunes never come alone, and the Trgoviste Municipality, which is close to the border with FYRMacedonia, is threatened by another disaster.Mudslides threaten the region, after the Pcinja River overflowed.
One of the mudslides is only 1.5 km away from Trgoviste and threatens to activate a big wave, which boosted by the Tripusnica River might bring around 300,000 cubic metres of dirt and mud and could cover the homes of the 5,000 inhabitants.
The authorities have started a “race with the time” to prevent the possible disaster.
