Deadly Floods Wreak Havoc in East Europe

Extreme Rain Events flooded rivers, breaking their banks in Romania’s districts of Arges, Gorj, Teleorman and Valcea, some 200 kilometers west of the capital Bucharest, forcing scores of people to evacuate.

At least a dozen people were left dead, or reported missing, according to local reports.

“A passenger train derailed in the same area after a small bridge caved in due to flooding, but there were no immediate reports of injuries, the national railway said,” AP reported.

“Seventy Bulgarian villages and parts of the city of Gabrovo were left without electricity and water supply was disrupted as the flooding destroyed some of the water and sewerage infrastructure. The rains also induced landslides and destroyed bridges, and many roads in the region were blocked by mud and debris.”

More areas in southern Romania could be affected in the next few days with torrential rains, local forecasters said.

In June, flash floods deluged neighboring Bulgaria, devastating the Black Sea resort city of Varna, killing more than a dozen people, and forcing scores of others to evacuate.

In May, Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia were hit by the most extreme rain events ever recorded in the region, which killed dozens of people and caused billions of dollars in damage.
