Floods, landslides and blocked roads


Sustained rainfall, sometimes in the form of showers, continues to affect coastal and coastal wilayas in the central and eastern parts of the country. Boomerdes Tizi-Ouzou, Bouira, Bejaia, Jijel, Mila, Bordj Bou Arreridj and Setif wilayasai are the most affected by the accumulation that reaches or exceeds 30 mm. Several roads were immersed in water and slaughtered. Major floods and sometimes landslide severely affected road traffic, especially in the valley of Tizi-Ouzou, where the cities were affected by Wilaya, Tikobain, Larbaa Ath Irathen, Tadmaït, Tigzirt, Fréha … The road to Algiers – Tizi-Ouzou is completely cut off all the afternoon traffic after floods on certain levels such as Thenia or Draa Ben khedda. The water level often exceeds 60 cm, which makes it impossible to travel by car. Several families who had to return to the capital had to return to Tizi-Ouzou to spend the night. It should be said that the plug extended the outcome of Draâ Ben Khedda to Thenia towards Tizi-Ouzou-Algiers.
