The hail caused most damage on people’s gardens, orchards and vineyards, Panagyurishte Mayor Nikola Belishki told Focus News Agency
about the hail in the town yesterday. According to initial estimates, about 60 litres per sq m fell within less than an hour. The hail was not big but lasted for about 40 minutes, the mayor said. “We had 5 reports on the municipal hotline. The same reports were received on 112,” he explained, adding that the hail did not interrupt the power supply. The most serious reports were about flooded garages and basements. Asked if the damage would be assessed, the mayor said: “We cannot assess it, it is not our competence. Claims should not be lodged with us.” “We have taken all the measures for an adequate response by the municipal water utility and the urban cleaning services, and by the fire department,” Nikola Belishki said.
