GV Author Ruslan Trad is tweeting – here [1], here [2], here [3], and here [4] – about the severe flooding in southern Bulgaria [5], which was caused by heavy rainfall of the past few days and has killed at least eight people in the village of Bisser. The latest tweet came about an hour ago [6]: “Breaking: Maritsa River’s dike broke close to the village of Generalovo, municipality of Svilenhrad, huge wave.” More photos from the disaster in the village of Bisser – at the Facebook page [7] [bg] of the Bulgarian National TV's fundraising effort to help the victims.
