National Environment Agency personnel have been actively engaged at the disaster site in Guria since early morning. Six teams of geologists are conducting comprehensive assessments, reported Vasil Gedevanishvili, Head of the National Environment Agency.
Gedevanishvili further emphasized the continued presence of National Environment Agency staff on-site and their commitment to promptly alert the population if any hazards emerge.
“Our primary objective is to thoroughly evaluate potential risks and lingering threats. We also provide recommendations to residents to relocate to safer areas and vacate their homes. The recent landslide incidents were triggered by heavy rainfall that inundated the region, reaching record levels in recent years. In certain locations, precipitation exceeded 160 mm, a significant amount. Unstable weather with anticipated rainfall is forecasted in the coming days, so we are diligently inspecting all areas,” stated Vasil Gedevanishvili.
