Heavy rains have forced municipalities in some parts of Bulgaria to declare a state of emergency. The situation seems to be more difficult in the southern municipality of Nedelino and in the wider province of Smolyan, where rivers overflowed blocking roads and causing landslides yesterday, Saturday, and today.

The amount of rain that fell there was about 200 liters per square meter, according to local authorities. Trucks were blocked due to a landslide on the Nedelino-Smolyan road.

Strong winds caused power outages in several villages in the area.

A state of emergency has also been declared in the municipality of Simitli in southwestern Bulgaria, where torrential rains have caused flooding of homes and damage to roads.

In Sofia, all emergency teams have been put on alert and are monitoring the level of Sofia rivers at critical points.
