OHRID LAKE WATER LEVEL ABOVE MAXIMUM
Fattened by recent heavy rains and melting snow, the Ohrid Lake is 21 cm above the maximum limit point.
Spokesperson for Crisis Management Center (CMC), Misko Taleski made the remarks this afternoon, confirming that the water-level of Ohrid Lake has increased by 1 cm compared to previous day.
“Although the water-level of Ohrid Lake is slightly increased, the situation remains stable”, Taleski said, adding that the forecasters predict good weather.
“The volume of inflowing rivers gradually decreases, which means that the water-level of Ohrid Lake will remain the same and if the weather conditions allow the water-level might decrease”, Taleski said.
MD: Citizens in Ohrid are worrying recently about so much rain and the rising of the water level. Some parts along the shores have already been flooded and the rain doesnt seem to stop anytime soon.
