“A month and a half ago, we have created the legal framework through which we can give help without the need for a Government meeting, which means that after we receive the evaluation report, people will be able to get financial, material support, everything they need. There is a fixed amount, but if needed, it can be supplemented. At this moment, we have to make sure that people can recover and restore their households as soon as possible,” Citu said.

He added that the fact that there were no casualties is a good thing, while the people have warned each other about the floods’ danger.

” It is a miracle there have not been any victims in the area, given what happened – over 250 liters of water on square meter . Now comes the hard part, in the short term, to restore everything that has broken down. First of all, we start with people’s households, where needed, we have already discussed whether (drinking) water is needed, we will bring containers of 1,000 liters of water as to have drinking water in the area, if there is a need for housing, mattresses, equipment, the Army, I spoke with the general (Nicolae Ciuca, Minister of Defense, ed.n.) for staff, but also heavy equipment to help. All resources will be handled to quickly solve (the situation). First of all, the citizens’ households to be able to return to normal as soon as possible, then we will start with the main roads, as well,” Citu added, according to Agerpres.
