Flooding in Tunisia led to the evacuation of 500 families

September 5, 2013. Flood became a hotbed of El Kef Governorate, located in the north-west of the country. Heavy rainfall submerged several residential areas of this part of Tunisia. Because of the poor quality of roads, muddy immediately from excessive moisture, access to flooded areas is much more complex.

However, fire rescuers managed to reach the affected people to evacuate from the flooded homes of about 500 families. Prior to the arrival of helping people had to flee from the water on the roofs of houses and outbuildings. Some had to be removed from the river currents blown cars. Fortunately, all the victims survived.

In the lowland areas of the Vedas and Merja-Blau-Slaa water level in the streets is still kept at a dangerous level. The water here came from local rivers, much spilled after a storm. Due to the absence of any of the security barrier and the easiest systems to stabilize the drainage of flooded areas will be extremely difficult. Rehabilitation of roads will also be a major expense for Tunisia.

As the storm and looked to neighboring Algeria, in the border areas of the North African state also spilled rivers of the Vedas Laage, quite as threatening the surrounding valleys.
