Niš City Mayor Dragana Sotirovski visited the flood affected areas in the Nišava and South Morava River basins last night and early this morning.  Seven households located at Vrežina Bridge are affected by floods and the bridge is closed for traffic.  The River Nišava threatened to endanger Medijana spring. The river is now stagnant and it is declining in the area of Bela Palanka. The residents of Medoševac and volunteers who organized themselves through social networks, about 200 of them, are filling sandbags to strengthen the embankments. According to the locals this level of the Nišava River was last recorded in 1974. It is critical in Popovac and Lalinac. Mechanization was engaged in Trupale since the water entered the yards and threatened to flood the interior of the houses.
