Power cut and flooded streets in Batumi

Heavy rain battered the Black Sea port of Batumi on Tuesday, causing flooding, DFWatch reports.

Several streets including the entrance to the city were blocked by the flood, while rescue workers tried to help with the first floors of buildings that were full of water.

Some cars were stuck in the streets. Additional teams of rescue workers were sent from Tbilisi and Kutaisi, because all available personnel in the Adjara region were already on duty.

There were also problems in other places around Batumi. Houses were flooded in Khelvachauri, while in Poti, an electricity substation was struck by lightning and power was cut for part of the city. First floors of houses were also flooded in Poti.
