“The situation is stable now. The dam-entrenchment is continued everywhere. Destroyed places are reconstructed and ravines are covered in Bayramli and Mursalli village. The unsteady dams which can create threats in future are entrenched. 60 m of a dam between Sarisu Lake and Kur River was reconstructed. There is no serious threat in the places where rescue and restoration work is done. The emergency forces, internal troops and army are involved in the entrenchment of unsteady dams”.

The minister said both Araz and Kur rivers flooded. “We are entrenching the places to prevent more serious threats. Kur River floods as a result of ice waters. It I caused by rainfall as well. There is no critical situation yet”.
