Меdvedja - Due to the snow that has not stopped falling in Medvedja and Sijarinska Spa for 48 hours, most of the population has been without electricity and mobile phone signal since yesterday morning, while broken trees and branches can be seen lying on the roads.

"Obnova" teams are in the field, while there is 50 cm or more snow in the hilly and mountainous parts of the municipality.  There was no electricity all night, while we did not even have a mobile phone signal until 9 o'clock this morning. Medvedja, now, has both a mobile phone signal and electricity, but the residents of Sijarinska Spa are still without electricity, "said Nebojsa Arsic, the municipal president.

He also said that he was in constant touch with the authorities and that he hoped that the weather would be on their side, so that all residents of this municipality could get  a mobile phone signal and electricity.

Only six days ago, the Emergency Situations Staff of the municipality of Medvedja reached a decision to abolish the emergency situation, which had been declared in the municipality due to the fixng up of the consequences caused by heavy rains and floods. The rains, which were falling for three days in January, caused the Jablanica and Banjska rivers to overflow, and as much as 50 percent of the population was left without electricity at that time.

The good news is that, according to meteorologists, the snow will stop falling on Thursday, so that the residents of the municipality of Medvedja hope to have fewer problems with electricity.
