Some 3,000 people, including hundreds of Easter tourists in Vrancea County (Central Romania) are completely isolated after the county road had collapsed, local press informs today (Mon).
The landslides created a 25 to 30 metre hole in the road following abundant rains over the weekend. The two communities Nereju and Spulber were left without power, natural gas and running water. People can cross the road only on foot and the situation will last at least a few weeks, locals fear.
"The three thousand people are safe now. We are working on bringing back the power as soon as possible. This road was completely destroyed during the massive floods in 2005. We contacted the road constructor and they sent an operative team to make a first assessment. Once the river returns to more normal levels, we will start rebuilding the road," county Prefect Marian Oprisan said.
The great majority of Romanians celebrated Easter according to the Orthodox calendar on Sunday, 15 April.
