- There were floods of the village streams. All crews are on the field, the situation is still critical, and the members of the Cuprija Water Distribution company are helping as well - stated in the announcement.

A part of the disaster which struck this municipality was transmitted by its residents with footages while driving through flooded streets. The footage shows a pump and its surroundings. It was almost impossible to see if the vehicle was moving over a safe location, in a river, or on the road.
