    Severe storm damage in Devin as well.

    There are fallen trees and blown away roofs
    Damage to residential and commercial buildings in Devin as well. The roofs of some of them in two districts of the city were blown away. Describing the damage began this morning.

    There were no injured people, but the element caused damage to almost every fifth house in the Nastan neighborhood of Devin. The hurricane-force wind partially lifted roofs, broke windows, and dislodged roof tiles. Throughout the day, people tried to repair the damage to the houses themselves, because they are afraid that it will rain again. The storm also knocked down many trees. The power supply is gradually being restored.

    Half the roof of Galab Milev’s house is in pieces.

    “I will need at least BGN 10,000. If I leave it like this during the winter, the whole house will be ruined,” says the man.
