Europe floods leave villages under water

Breaking Earth News
Severe flooding in south-eastern Europe has left villages and farms under water and several municipalities in a declared state of emergency.

Heavy rain in southern Bulgaria left many villages without electricity or fresh water.

The country's worst-hit area was the district of Stara Zagora, where rescue teams had to evacuate people from submerged houses. Dozens of homes remained underwater on Monday while many roads in the region remained impassible.

In north-eastern Greece, the Rodopi prefecture remained in a state of emergency after hundreds of homes and farms were flooded by rising waters over the weekend.

Torrential Rains
IRELAND - It rained almost as much in some areas of Ireland Sunday as it did during the entire month of October. Despite an exceptionally dry and relatively sunny period lasting for most of September and October, heavy rains at the weekend measured 13mm at Dublin Airport Sunday. The same weather station recorded just 15.7mm of rain during the whole of last month. Winter has arrived with a vengeance with cold, blustery winds and pockets of heavy rain expected across the country for much of the week.

MALAWI - Three days of heavy rains have triggered flash flooding and displaced more than 2000 people in southern Malawi. About 20 villages have been destroyed following persistent rains and hailstorms in the area, about 50 kilometres west of the country's commercial capital Blantyre. "We are yet to establish whether the floods have caused any deaths and how much crop has been destroyed."
