The rains forecast by the meteorologists for the next days could isolate Bacau from the north of Moldavia. The improvised tube bridge crossing the Bistrita river could give in because of the increased flow.

Facing the specialists’ warnings, the authorities in Bacau met yesterday morning in a flash meeting, to set up a plan not wanting to be caught by surprise.

The bridge in Serbanesti was torn almost two weeks ago under the weight of a 80 tons crane working on its consolidation.
