Fourteen people who were reported missing after Sunday morning’s deadly Tbilisi flood have shown up safe and well and are now recovering from their ordeal with their loved ones.

Officials initially said 24 people were missing after the flood but this reduced to 22 when two people returned home late last night.

By this morning, 12 more missing people had returned home.

A spokesperson for Crisis and Emergency Management Council told Agenda.ge that as of midday Monday, 10 people still remained unaccounted for.

Rescuers were continuing to search for the missing 10 people.

The Council officially confirmed 12 people had died in the disaster. The spokesperson said this number could unfortunately rise by the end of the day after debris is removed from houses on Svanidze St - one of the most affected areas of the capital city.
