Bulgaria, Romania Mull Blasting Danube Ice.
Bulgarian authorities have said they will ask their Romanian counterparts to blow up ice that has covered the great river some 30 km downstream in Romania to free the movement of waters.
Overnight the level of the Danube at Silistra has risen by 14 cm to 648 cm, with the critical level being 777 cm.
No new damages have been recorded on Bulgarian territory due to ice on the river, which has nevertheless caused this far considerable damages to port facilities and boats.
The Danube at Silistra and further downstream is still completely frozen over.
The Silistra port facilities underwent massive damage Sunday overnight when ice started moving downstream and crashed into piers and pontoons.
