Romania: Dramatic rescue operation during flood emergency

(EuroNews) – Heavy rainfall broke river banks in the affected counties of Gorj, Valcea, Arges and Teleorman, about 200 kilometres west of the capital Bucharest in Roumania. Interior Minister Gabriel Oprea said 400 people were rescued from 1,100 homes in the area and given temporary shelter in nearby schools and police stations or at relatives’ homes. The state environment authority said rivers in the area rose to levels seen about once every 200 years. Weather forecasters said more counties in southern Romania could be affected later in the week with more torrential rains on the horizon.
