The Danube is rising

22.03.2018

Sonya Machorska

   The level of the Danube this morning at the beginning of the Bulgarian section at Vidin is 762 cm. The maximum reached in the last flood in 2006 is 970 cm. The water invades through Sarai and Top Kapi. The dam around the Baba Vida fortress, built on the principle of action of the coupling vessels, is filled with water from the river. The tendency in the middle and lower reaches of the Danube is to decrease the level.

   The biggest flood in the history of Vidin was on March 4, 1942. In the winter of 1941-42 the temperatures dropped to minus 30 degrees and the Danube was freezing with thick ice. The icebreak formed on the Danube River in the beginning of March has become a local attraction. However, the ice is kept on the island of Bogdan (about 8 km along the river), creating an ice cap that rises sharply and quickly the water level. And the coast at Vidin at that time was higher than the city itself. Protected facilities, terrestrial dikes and drainage canals have failed to save the city, the water is overflowing and quickly floods it after midnight. People remember only the rumbling of the water in the dark night. The water reaches depths of up to 5 meters. At the orders of the mayor Stefan Totev, the temple bells begin to beat, awaken the sleeping people and that saves the city from many victims.

   The magnitude of the disaster is enormous, and the damage is catastrophic. Hundreds of houses are destroyed. The streets and the main square of the city are boating. At that time a large part of the young men of Vidin were in Vardar Macedonia in the ranks of the Third Bin 'Infantry Regiment, and there is only a small number of troops available in the city. However, the authorities' response was then perfectly organized. German aviation bombarded the ice bay on the island of Bogdan and unpacked the river to begin its slow drain.
