Preliminary estimates on repairs in the Bulgarian town of Mizia, which was hit by flash floods in August, have been made public.
The calculations are based on the damages of infrastructure, dwellings and public buildings alone, with the cost of food products for the most severely affected residents yet to come,
Mizia Mayor Violin Krushovenski told the Bulgarian National Radio. Krushovenski added some 828 houses have been left inundated by the floods.
Out of the total, 123 are uninhabitable, since 27 have been dilapidated and 98 are yet to be demolished.
About 300 displaced people could be facing food shortage after the military field kitchen, which had been operating for some time in the town, closed down.
The mayor reminded Miziya was the lowest-lying part of the region of Vratsa, a town in Bulgaria's north-west, and was virtually a catchment for the waters of dams within a certain distance.
