Heavy rain on Sunday flooded several parts of Eastern and Central Georgia, located in the Caucasus region of Eurasia.

Flood waters destroyed 9 houses in the village of Zemo Mleta about 120km east of the capital of Tbilisi. Several fields were damaged around the village and livestock in the area also died.
