Bulgaria's Mountain Rescue Service on 25th of January warns of high danger of avalanches in the mountains, reports BNT.
Considerable avalanche danger prevails in Pirin mountain, where the showfall was significant and storm-strong winds have deposited fresh snowdrifts on the slopes.
One skier is enough to trigger an avalanche in such locations, the rescue service warns.
Hunedoara County mountain rescuers will be able to use a drone in their search missions for mountain accident victims. The high-performance eye in sky can reach an altitude of 1,000 m, has a range of 15 km and a flight life of half an hour.
The director of the mountain rescue service, Radko Markov, warned on Friday that there is a considerable danger of avalanches occurring in the Bulgarian mountains.
Markov recommended to tourists to prepare well before going out in the mountain by researching the route and avoiding areas prone to avalanches in order to minimise the risks of being engulfed by an avalanche.
