Three people died and several hundreds were forced to evacuate as surging floodwaters submerged villages in Eastern Europe.

Two people, including a 72-year-old man, also drowned in Romania as floods raged in different regions, said Interior Minister Gabriel Oprea.


A passenger train derailed in the same area after a small bridge caved in due to flooding, but there were no immediate reports of injuries, the national railway said.


Ion Manta, deputy mayor of the southwest Romanian town Novaci, said 500 people had been evacuated from three villages there and some 75 houses were cut off by floods after the River Gilort burst its banks. A local government official said waters reached three metres.


The Romanian government sent three helicopters to flooded areas in the foothills of the Parang mountains and the army dispatched dozens of troops to help with rescue efforts.


Forecasters issued the red code weather warnings for both Bulgaria and Romania.

Romania has had its wettest summer in years and the heavy rainfall has also caused several flash floods in eastern Bulgaria, the heaviest in the Black Sea resort city of Varna in June when 13 people were killed.

One person died and another was missing after flash floods caused by heavy rain in the district of Gabrovo in central Bulgaria, reports said on July 29.

The exact cause of death of the 61-year-old woman from the village of Vranilovtsi, was not reported.

A 39-year-old man from the same village – whom some reports identified as the deceased’s son – was reported missing.

Torrential rainfall overnight left 70 villages in the Gabrovo district, as well as several residential neighbourhoods in the town of Gabrovo, with no electricity, but the power lines were repaired by the late morning on July 29, Bulgarian National Radio (BNR) reported.

Several villages and parts of Gabrovo were also left without drinking water, as the flooding destroyed some of the water and sewerage infrastructure. Repairs would be carried out once the water levels subsided, BNR said.

In the areas affected the most, the floods were strong enough to carry cars and farm vehicles away, with local residents forced to climb onto rooftops to avoid the torrents, broadcaster Darik Radio reported.

Heavy rainfall has caused several flash floods in different parts of Bulgaria so far this summer – notably, in the resort town of Primorsko earlier this month and in Varna in June, when 13 people were killed. One other person died in the Bulgarian capital city of Sofia earlier this month during a violent hailstorm, while several municipalities in Sofia region declared a state of emergency after torrential rains in mid-June.

Освен Габровско, в епицентъра на последните наводнения се озова и регионът на Карлово. Кошмарна нощ и истински ужас преживяха хората в Карловския Балкан. Над 70 къщи в 10 села са наводнени.

От 4:00 часа сутринта хората се борят с водния ад. Отводняването на приземните етажи и дворовете им продължава и в момента. Голяма част от покъщнината им е погубена. Материалните щети са огромни, но за щастие няма жертви и пострадали.

Точно две години след като в Дъбене бе обявено бедствено положение, стихията застигна отново карловското село. Хората казват, че причината за бедствието не е проливният дъжд, а минаващата през селото река Мътеница, която отново е обрасла с растителност и е затлачена на места.

Коритото на реката не е почистено. Оказа се, че решението на проблема струва 2 000 лева.

Повече за преживяното от хората в Карловско ще научите от видеото.

Nevrijeme izazvalo nove poplave u BiH

Jako nevrijeme, praćeno obilnim padalinama zahvatilo je sinoć Bosansku Kostajnicu, a bujične vode poplavile su više od stotinu kuća i nekoliko proizvodnih objekata.

Stanovnici donjeg dijela ove općine su ispričali novinarima da se sve dogodilo oko 19 sati, i to svega nekoliko minuta.

Uslijed jake kiše, kanali i potoci u gradu su se izlili i izazvali štetu na objektima, veću i one tijekom poplava u svibnju.

“Riječice Mačkovac, Strigova i drugi manji potoci s okolnih brda sručili su se na grad u roku od 15 minuta i voda je prodrla u veći broj objekata nego tijekom svibanjskih poplava, uključujući i dva veća gospodarska objekta”, potvrdio je Aleksandar Pašić, glasnogovornik Općine Kostajnica.

Mještani Bosanske Kostajnice su ispričali i kako je voda iza sebe ostavila mulj, blato i otpad.

Načelnik Civilne zaštite Općine Kostajnica Zoran Kos je potvrdio je da se uslijed jakih padalina izlila rijeka Tavija te poplavila veliki broj stambenih objekata.

Ekipe Civilne zaštite su odmah izašle na teren kako bi pružile pomoć stanovnicima, a i pripadnici elektrodistribucije i komunalnih usluga čine sve da pomognu poplavljenima.

Voda se danas polako povlači, ali štete su ogromnih razmjera.

Prema prvim procjenama, šteta je veća od one koja je nastala u majskim poplavama, koje takođe nisu zaobišle ovu lokalnu zajednicu.

Stanovnici donjeg dijela ove opštine su ispričali da se sve dogodilo oko 19 časova i da je trajalo svega nekoliko minuta. Mještani Kostajnice su ispričali da je voda iza sebe ostavila mulj, blato i otpad.

To je sve bilo u pet minuta. Pred sobom je nosilo sve, da se ne može opisati“, ispričala je Mileva Basrak iz Kostajice.

Milka Vujanović, takođe mještanka, kazala je da u Kostajnici živi 50 godina, te da ovako nešto nije doživjela.

Kokoške je podavilo, piliće isto… Podrum, ljetina, dvorište, sve je bilo pod vodom dubine jedan metar. To ja nisam zapamtila“, ispričala je Vujanovićeva.

Drago Bundalo, načelnik opštine Kostajnica, kazao je da je riječ o poplavi kakva nije zapamćena u ovoj lokalnoj zajednici.

Prema podacima nadležnih, voda je odnijela i jedan drveni most i opustošila usjeve i stočni fond, a u domovima uništila namještaj i aparate.

Voda se danas polako počela povlačiti, ali šteta je ogromnih razmjera. Formirana je komisija koja će evidentirati posljedice ovog jakog nevremena.Podsjećanja radi, šteta na području ove opštine tokom poplava u maju procijenjena je na 3,5 miliona maraka. Od toga je na stambenim i pomoćnim objektima šteta 1.070.000, infrastrukturi 1.042.000, privredi 58.000 i u poljoprivredi 1.320.000 KM.


Kostajnica, međutim, nije jedina lokalna zajednica u kojoj su, nakon majskog potopa, zabilježene nove poplave.

Nove poplave

Olujno nevrijeme praćeno obilnom kišom, koje je 22. jula zahvatilo Bratunac, Maglaj, Lukavac, Doboj i Srebrenicu, potopilo je oko stotinu kuća, a vodena bujica odnijela je i desetak mostova i ušla u jedan školski objekat.

Ni te lokalne zajednice nisu bile pošteđene tokom majskih katastrofalnih poplava, tako da je lokalno stanovništvo, taman kada se počelo oporavljati od šoka, zaprepastila nova nevolja.


U nekoliko bratunačkih sela, 22. jula, poplavljeno je oko 100 objekata, a odneseno je pet manjih mostova.


Kada je riječ o Maglaju, istog dana došlo je do izlijevanja rijeke Jablanice, koja je poplavila oko 50 domaćinstava i uništila poljoprivredna dobra, te više mostova, a oštećen je i jedan lokalni vodovod.


Istog datuma, na području Doboja potopljeno je oko 20 kuća, a nekoliko ih je pod vodom bilo i u Srebrenici.

Torrential rain has caused flooding in a large part of eastern Slovakian village of Vlkova, some two months after a previous flood hit the same region.

Flood inundated at least some 30 houses in the village late on Friday, village mayor Peter Bendik said, adding that the village had been recovering from floods in May.

The fresh flooding also damaged roads and utility poles and triggered landslides in the village, but fortunately caused no casualties, Bendik said.

Heavy rains and floods this week devastated part of the Northern Slovakia as well.

July 26, 2014

Torrential rain caused the flooding of a large part of the eastern Slovak village of Vlkova (Presov region) late on Friday, TASR has learnt.

According to village mayor Peter Bendik, the flood inundated at least some 30 houses. “Over the last two months, the village has been recovering from floods in May, and then after it rains for an hour and a half, you’re essentially back to square one,” said Bendik. The village still hasn’t completed the calculation of damage from the floods in May.

The latest flooding also damaged roads and utility poles and triggered landslides in the village.

“This hasn’t happened since 2010. What occurred in May was bad in its own right… but what happened now (on Friday) was extreme,” said Bendik, but added that, fortunately, nobody was killed or injured.

Locals are currently pumping water especially from the basements of their houses and removing large quantities of mud from outside the houses and from the roads.

Prime minister promises financial help to the devastated Vrátna valley


After the Monday flood wave that devastated Vrátna valley and the village of Terchová in the Malá Fatra Mountains, Prime Minister Róbert Fico paid a visit to the affected region.

Fico praised the efforts of people dispatched to alleviate the effects of the flood. “In the seven years that I’ve served as premier, I’ve seen a lot of things, but it’s a small miracle that no victims have been reported so far, as the material damage is enormous. What we saw in person is a completely destroyed valley, there are dozens of broken down wrecks, and the whole cable-car station is buried in stones. The fact that everyone managed to get to safety is incredible luck,” said Fico.

a region that is so important to Slovakia in terms of tourism has been dealt such a heavy blow.

“In co-operation with the self-governing region and the village, we want to allocate financial resources as soon as possible to address the most urgent matters at hand,” he said. “If necessary, we’ll convene a Government session and approve the volume of financial resources necessary for heavy equipment, because without heavy equipment, we won’t be able to do anything at all in Vrátna valley.

Cooperation between professional and voluntary firefighters …

Aside from a hundred of professional firefighters and rescue workers, Vratna Valley saw the arrival of 180 voluntary firefighters from Zazriva, Namestovo, Turzovka, Skalite, Martin-Priekopy, the Voluntary Firefighter Corps of Sucany, the Orava Emergency System and the Trnava Voluntary Firefighter Corps. “It needs to be said that a quite unusual rescue operation, in comparison to Slovak standards, was launched by 25 mountain rescuers who evacuated 122 people from Chalet Vratna with the use of various rope-based systems. Only a three-month-old and number of small children were abseiled down dangerous sections. And what’s most important, everyone was evacuated to safety without any harm,” said Kalinak.

The Interior Minister… “Even if foreign tourists were missing, someone would probably have started to search for them by now. We don’t have such an information at the moment, although the scenario can never be ruled out.”

According to Zilina Region (ZSK) Governor Juraj Blanar, ZSK has already ask the Government for a financial injection worth €3.06 million to alleviate the damage, with the Cabinet scheduled to discuss the proposal on Monday.

Blanar warned that Vratna Valley is closed to tourists. “I’d like to ask all tourists not to go to Vratna Valley as long as the entrance ban remains in effect. They would be endangering not only their own lives but also the ongoing rescue work,” said the governor, who claimed that the firefighters and volunteer corps are hard at work to reopen Vratna Valley to tourism as soon as possible. “But I can already say today that this will take at least a month or two.”
