Hail and torrential rain hit Saturday the southern towns of Zlatograd, Madan and Devin, the municipal administrations said. The hail in the village of Galishte near Madan was so large it broke roof tiles and windows, Madan Mayor Fahri Molaisenov said.
Walnut-size hail razed fields and gardens in Nedelino village near Smolyan. Many socially networking farmers complained that no vegetable or anything else planted had survived.
In Zlatograd, the fail formed a 20-cm thick cover, the Mayor, Miroslav Yanchev, said. There are flooded premises, fallen trees, clogged drain pipes and mud brought in. The crops around the settlements where the hail fell are almost entirely destroyed.
Rain and hail also flooded streets, offices and catering establishments in Devin.
