Dimitrov explained to “24 Chasa” that he arrived in the municipality at 3 o’clock to coordinate the actions of the headquarters. “The problem came from the wet snow that stuck to the leaves and brought down many branches and even trees on the roads themselves,” said the mayor. True to his style, imposed even in the Trakia region as mayor, he personally took up the clean-up while going around the critical points in the city. “We are working in sync with the fire department and the police to secure individual sections,” added Dimitrov.

“Strong gusts of wind are expected later in the day. Please don’t go outside because of the danger of falling objects and branches,” appealed the Mayor of Plovdiv Kostadin Dimitrov.
