Heavy rain flood in north Cyprus.. cars and properties destroyed (pictures)

The Water Development Department said on Wednesday as two more of the largest reservoirs reached full capacity and water flooded over the dam walls
Kouris and Evretou reservoirs overflowed between Tuesday and Wednesday while Kalavasos residents woke up to find a river where a road had been for many years and more than 10 homes had to be evacuated.
According to senior engineer at the WDD, Marios Hadjicostis, this is the first time that water reserves have been so high in January forcing dam after dam to overflow. This is down to a combination of factors: the heavy rainfall this year, but also the existing high water levels at the start of the rainy season in October.
“Usually the dams overflow around March or April but this year because of the high water reserves due to last year’s rainfall we had overflows in January,” Hadjicostis told the Cyprus News Agency.
He added that water levels in reservoirs were already at their highest ever October figure.
Nicosia  residents were among thousands suffering real problems after weeks of heavy rain.

On Wednesday, they woke up to find a river where a road had been for many years after heavy rainfall on Tuesday resulted in the flooding of several streets in the village.
