YEREVAN. – The heavy snowfall and the ensuing melting were the cause for the collapse in Armenia’s Mozrov Cave in the Vayots Dzor Region, Nature Protection Ministry Press Secretary Hasmik Mkrtchyan told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
In her words, a 50-m3 soil had collapsed 2-3 metes from the Cave’s entrance. And upon the Minister’s instruction, a sign was placed at the Cave’s entrance to prevent people from entering it.
