Snakes run from the Danube
The water snakes climbed along the coastal trees after the high Danube flooded their dwellings in the walls and the shore. The sharp rise of river water in the last days in Vidin has driven some of its inhabitants to the coast. Water snakes are not poisonous. They are from the Smoky family. Now they are an attraction for people. Wrapped around the branches of the bushes and trees, they periodically dive into the water.
Today the level of the river at 790, 20 reached 755 centimeters. The Mayor of Vidin Municipality, еng. Ognyan Tzenkov, issued an order in which he initiated the first step - "Raised Attention" at the level of the river from 750 cm to 850 cm from the Municipal Plan for Protection in Disasters in the "Flood Protection", the Press Center of the Institution announced. For this purpose, a daily monitoring of the status of the dykes and the corrections of the rivers flowing into the Danube, as well as round-the-clock duty at the pumping stations is organized.
The last critical rise of the Danube was in the second half of May 2014.
