Hail, rain and windstorm hit one of the districts of the Kakheti Region, Gurjaani late last night leaving the locals without food and harvest this year. The windstorm and hail razed their vineyards and agricultural lands to the ground, flooded the yards and orchards in the six villages of the district. The swollen river flooded the ground floors of the houses damaging all that people had there. Locals complain about the cattle and poultry killed by the last few days` disaster.
The windstorm and the flood even blocked up movement on Gurjaani-Lagodekhi highway, where the uprooted trees fell.
The situation is grave in Telavi district too. Houses and the district roads have been damaged in the villages of Tsinandali and Kondoli.
The windstorm has tore down electrical wires leaving Gurjaani, Telavi, Akhmeta and Sagarejo population in blackout.
The weather improved this morning, however, rivers are still swollen causing danger to the local population. The local administrations have already formed special commissions to count the damage. Weather forecast says the rains will continue until the next week.
