"The ice jam begins near the villages of Pinkovce, Likarovce and Zahor of Slovakia's Košice region stretching up to Storozhnytsia village in the Uzhhgorod district (Ukraine). If Slovakia takes no urgent measures to unblock the ice drift, the water in Uzh River will rapidly rise which could partially flood Storozhnytsia and Uzhgorod," Moskal said.
As reported, Chief of the Department of Water Resources of the Tysa River Volodymyr Chypak urgently left for Slovakia to assess the situation on the ground together with the Slovak watermen.
"If necessary, Zakarpattia Administration is ready to send its bomb technicians to Slovakia for blasting the ice jam and release the drift at any time. The ice flow in neighboring Hungary and Romania is also under constant monitoring. The situation is under control of the regional state administration," the statement reads.
