Special crisis management teams have been set up in western Georgia to assess the damage caused by heavy rains and floods in a number of western Georgian districts. The authorities have also mobilized reserve forces to involve them in relief activities.
Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Nogaideli will visit the flood-stricken regions on April 26.
