Flood waters continue to threaten several other important bridges in the district; many uprooted trees, which clogged passages under the bridges, have been brought by the water. The rivers have changed their course bypassing the obstacle, have washed out roads and now are washing away bridge supports, the administration of the Partizansky district reported.
