Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili announced a day of mourning in Tbilisi, Monday, after at least 12 people died in the severe flooding that hit Georgian capital on Saturday night. Twenty-four people are still reported as missing.

Churches and monasteries across Georgia paid the tribute to the flood's victims, ringing bells at 12:00 local time (08:00 GMT). Official state buildings across the country flew their flag at half-mast.

The flood was caused by record-breaking levels of rainfall that led the Vere River's banks to burst. The flooding destroyed houses and roads, damaging pipelines and power lines. Local authorities announced the preliminary costs of damages at around 50 million lari (€23 million/$25.84 million).
