Flood warning issued for 15 counties in Romania

Authorities on Tuesday stashed sandbags next to swollen rivers in western Romania, where days of heavy rain have put 15 counties at risk of flooding.

The Environment Ministry sent orange-code warnings, the second highest level of alert, to authorities in five western and northwestern counties in the Transylvania and Banat regions, state news agency Rompres reported.

With forecasters predicting more heavy rain over the next two days, local authorities were placing sandbags along the banks of the Somes and Crisul Alb rivers to prevent flooding, the AP reports.

Lower-grade flood warnings were issued for 10 other western and northwestern counties.

Water management officials are monitoring dams and river levels.

The Balkan country has been hit by widespread flooding in recent years, resulting in dozens of deaths and tens of thousands residents being evacuated from their homes.
