Currently, more than 1200 buildings/houses (some partially) and 9000ha farmland are flooded. So far, 730 families from the district of Shkodra have been evacuated from the flooded areas. Many displaced families are sheltered in student dormitories provided by the Government. The rest of the displaced people are sheltered by friends and relatives. The Albanian Government foresees that in the coming days 3000 to 3500 additional families have to be evacuated. It has declared the ?state of civil emergency? and has established an Inter-Ministerial Committee.
