The measurements carried out on Sunday night show that the level of Maritsa River has significantly risen as a result of the extreme weather events in Bulgaria, as announced by the competent Greek authorities. The data indicate that the water run-off is over 1,200 cubic metres per second.

The Civil Defence Department in the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace recommends that citizens should not go close to the embankments and pass through the flooded areas if they are not sure of the water depth and the condition of the road surface under it.

The regional services are in a state of readiness in case they have to prevent flooding in urban areas. During a visit to the region of Ormenio and Dikea villages a team of engineers defined the situation as stable.
