Heavy rains still ravage Romania

Heavy rains and storms created many problems in several localities across Romania. In the Mehedinti County, several homesteads were flooded, and their inhabitants fear that the worst is still to come. After several days of incessant rain, many houses of Malovat, Mehedinti County, are under water, forcing people to take their animals to higher ground. Water is now over 3 metres deep and the banks of the local river are about to give up, leaving even more homes under water.Violent storms also ravaged the town of Drobeta Turnu Severin, breaking a roadside nut tree which fell on a car and a fence. Another tree was uprooted in the town of Targu Jiu, by a storm that lasted just minutes. The tree fell in the middle of the street, and its branches damaged an automobile.In the County of Prahova, about 40 families from Cerasu and Drajna are isolated and can only be reached by foot, as the respective two roads built alongside water courses collapsed after days of torrential rain. According to data provided by the spokesman of the Prahova Prefect’s Office, Mihai Condrescu, quoted by Mediafax, approximately 30 families living in the Valea Borului area of the Cerasu commune were isolated by water, as 100 metres of the road leading to the zone collapsed in the raging creek.A similar misfortune happened to the 10 families that live in the Poduri area of the Drajna commune, the official added.Bucharest, too, suffered under the recent downpours. The intermodal station of the Basarab passageway gave up, and water enters through the joints of the roof, less than a year from the moment when it was inaugurated.The city of Iasi, too, is threatened by floods, same as the surrounding localities. The worst situation is experienced on the streets that are currently being revamped and repaired.Weather services issued an orange code rain and storm warning for Bucharest and the counties of Prahova, Buzau, Braila, Ialomita, Calarasi, Ilfov, Galati, Vrancea, Suceava, Neamt and Bacau, in effect since yesterday, 6.00 PM, until today at 6.00 PM.
