Romanian Storm Havoc

A child and a man have been killed and more than 300 people evacuated in northeastern Romania after heavy rain led to widespread flooding. Homes were swept away, roads and bridges were damaged and there have been power outages. Villagers in Suceava county, the worst hit area, were climbing onto rooftops and up trees to save themselves from the swollen rivers. Two days of heavy rains have hit towns and villages in six counties, particularly in Iasi, Neamt and Suceava at the border with Ukraine. Meteorologists have already urged Romanians to expect temperatures this summer in excess of 40 degrees Celsius, together with freak storms and heavy rainfall long periods of hot, dry weather will generate. In 2005 and 2006, Romania was hit by exceptionally heavy rainfall and flooding.
