Strong Wind Damages Roofs, Causes Power Cuts

Strong winds over the weekend damaged roofs of hundreds of buildings and left tens of thousands of households without electricity in various parts of the country.

In Adjara region on the Black Sea coast high waves flooded parts of Batumi’s seaside boulevard; a fisherman is believed to have drowned after reportedly a large wave dragged him into the sea.

Strong wind either ripped off or otherwise damaged roofs of 150 houses and of several schools in the Adjara region, according to the authorities.
