Vast areas flooded in northern Azerbaijan
A vast area was inundated in northern Azerbaijan following an accident in the early hours on Friday.
A motorway and about 40 hectares of woods in the Aghalig village of Davachi District were flooded as a result of the accident in the Khan Arkhi canal, which supplies northern districts with water used in irrigation, the district mayor’s office said. Work is underway to eliminate the aftermath of the flood.
Executive officials, heads of law-enforcement agencies, as well as employees of the Emergencies Ministry and the chairman of the State Fire Service Azhdar Aliyev arrived at the site.
Traffic on the highway was restored after heavy-utility equipment was pulled to the site.*
