Devastation Caused by the Tbilisi Zoo by Flood; Georgia, June 2015

Taken on 2015-06-14

Following hours of heavy rainfall, a landslide dammed up the Vere river late on 13 June 2015. The resulting flood inflicted severe damage on the Tbilisi Zoo, a highway running through the Vere valley, and nearby houses, resulting in at least 12 deaths, including three zoo workers. One of them, a 56-year woman, had recently returned to work after having had an arm amputated two weeks earlier after a tiger mauled it. bout 36 people were admitted for mild-to-moderate injuries; most of them were discharged from hospitals on the same day. Of the 24 people reported as missing as of late 14 June, ten remained unaccountable for on 15 June.[6] More than 40 families were left homeless and 22,000 people were left without electricity. The Georgian government reported a preliminary estimated flood damage cost of approximately GEL 40 million.
