flood_Kvishkheti02_CropTBILISI, DFWatch–One man and about 500 sheep and 40 cows were caught up in a landslide in the village Khone, in Khevsureti on Tuesday.

According to Information Center of Mtskheta, shepherd Giorgi Shetekauri is missing after the glacial mudslide.

Rescue workers from Dusheti were sent to the disaster area but due to the difficult conditions they were unable to get access. There are no bridges to reach the place over land.

A helicopter has already left for the area, according to the Interior Ministry.

Interpressnews quotes the governor of Mtskheta-Mtianeti saying that the shepherd was in the disaster area because he had taken cover against the rain.
