Prime Minister Viorica Dancila has made an announcement that the authorities are going to evaluate the damages in the localities hit by the abundant precipitations, in order to establish exactly what interventions are needed in each one’s case, at the Government level.
“In the past couple of days, there were abundant rainfalls, which brought floods and caused damages in certain localities. I convoked this morning a bad weather task force, in part to analyze the situation and in part to help us anticipate the possible effects, after risks for floods were warned by the meteorologists yesterday. (…) Thus, in the affected localities there will be organized such activities meant to evaluate the damages, after which we are going to centralize these damages, in order to know exactly what interventions are needed at Government level. We are ready that, in the shortest while, to offer support to the local communities,” said Dancila in the beginning of the Government meeting on Thursday.
She appreciated the efforts made in the past couple of days by those who got involved in managing the emergency situations.
“In the next hours we’ve asked the local authorities and everyone involved to stay vigilant. The local commandments will remain active in case of emergency situations, the same as the ISU (Inspectorate for Emergency Situations) operational group,” she specified.
