The water consumption in Kura river reached 2,500 cubic meters per second, exceeding its maximum level by 1,000 cubic meters per second in recent days, Speaker Oktay Asadov said.
"The state takes all possible measures. This happens all over the world. Poland has been also seriously affected by heavy flooding. The situation is analyzed. There are no grounds for serious concern," speaker said.
MP Nasib Nasibli said that necessary measures to prevent the disaster, despite the marked increase of groundwater level, have not been taken, he said.
MP Rustam Khalilov said that many casualties were avoided due to timely implementation of activities.
"Only one person died. The State has undertaken extensive work to liquidate consequences of disaster," Khalilov said.
MP Panah Husein, in his turn, considers the situation serious. "We need to create a commission to investigate the causes of the disaster. The level of water in the Kura dropped, but flooding continues. Sabirabad is a zone of disaster," Husein said.
