Yellow code flood warning for 13 counties

On Sunday afternoon, hydrologists issued a new yellow code flood warning for rivers in 13 counties, a warning set to expire on Monday at noon.

According to hydrologists, in the regions concerned there will be flash floods in mountainous areas and on small rivers, leading to possible local flooding and hikes in the discharge and levels of certain rivers in the hydrographic basins concerned and the possible surpassing of warning levels.

National Hydrology and Water Management specialists point out that the dangerous hydrological phenomena could also take place on the smaller tributaries of the rivers concerned.

At the same time, the previous warning issued for the rivers that caused flooding in Moldavia, killing 2 and endangering hundreds more, was lifted at 2 p.m. on Sunday. The worst affected counties were Vrancea, Bacau and Buzau, where a total of 150 localities were hit by floods.

Two people lost their lives, 39 were rescued and over 200 were evacuated, according to the latest tally. The damage caused is significant and Premier Dacian Ciolos has asked the Interior Ministry to carry out an assessment during the Government meeting this week.
