Macedonia earmarks MKD six million in aid to flood-affected regions in Albania

 Macedonia earmarks MKD six million in aid to flood-affected regions in Albania

Skopje, 12 December 2017 (MIA) - Macedonia's government at its regular session on Tuesday has earmarked MKD six million (about EUR 97,600) in financial support and additional humanitarian aid to flood-affected regions in Albania.

At least one death was confirmed and travel was brought to a halt by widespread flooding that swamped many parts of Albania in early December. Continued rain and flooding prompted the evacuation of 600 families in two of the country's southwestern districts, local media reported.

More than 3,000 homes, 56 schools and 16,000 hectares of agricultural land have been flooded. Many roads and 28 bridges have been damaged. Albania's authorities have started calculating the damage to consider financial compensation, the reports said. lk/20:35
