The roads leading to several villages in Gacko are still impassable due to overflowing water after the heavy rainfall of the previous days, but also due to the snow, which in some places reaches 70 centimeters.
Aleksa Vuckovic, commander of the fire brigade in Gacko, told agency Srna that the height of the snow in the village of Fojnica is 70 centimeters.
“The water level in the village of Lukovice is 50 centimeters lower, but the entire village is currently cut off from the town due to snowfall,” stated Vuckovic.
Mechanization in the field
Namely, the villages of Ticevo, Preodac, Stozista and Tiskovac in the Bosansko Grahovo municipality are cut off from the world due to heavy snow, confirmed the president of the Bosansko Grahovo Municipal Council Sladjana Ceko.
According to her, the available machinery is in the field, but the wind makes it difficult to clean the roads.
The road to Drvar is impassable
The mayor of the municipality of Drvar, Dusica Runic, said that a state of natural disasters will be declared in the area of this local community, if the snow continues to fall.
Runic stated that the Serbian villages near Glamoc have had no electricity since Saturday, that the machinery is on the ground, but that the snow is over a meter high due to strong winds.
“The villages that gravitate towards the Una-Sana canton are also swept away. If the rainfall and strong wind continue, we will declare a state of natural disaster in the area of Drvar municipality,” said Runic.
