Mayor: water is approaching farms
This second town is actually cut off from the rest of the commune. – An excavator is currently working to push the ice so that the water can flow down and clear the road – TVN24 reporter Paweł Łukasik, who was on site, reported on Tuesday.
– The district road is flooded for approximately 800 meters. We can’t get through here by car. About 110 people live in the entire town. But there are also plenty of summer plots. They are mainly flooded – Krzysztof Jezierski, mayor of the Zabrodzie commune, told the reporter. He reassured that permanent residents had houses located in higher places. – This water is currently approaching the farms – admitted Jezierski.
Children had trouble getting to school. Firefighters came to help. – We provide children with a ride to school in a fire truck – assured the mayor.
You can’t even drive an off-road vehicle
Jezierski emphasized that the road will be fully cleared only when the water recedes. When? – The situation is difficult to predict. We know that the water is getting lower upstream. I hope that these declines will also come to us – he added.
Paweł Łukasik talked to a driver who tried to drive an off-road vehicle through a flooded road. The man admitted that he had to turn back. – Even the off-road vehicle couldn’t make it, he told the reporter.
The situation is monitored by firefighters using drones. The problem is the floe breaking off and creating blockages. They cause water to accumulate.
