Deadly floods hit eastern Europe


Severe flooding in parts of eastern Europe have left at least six people dead and forced hundreds of people from their homes.

In Poland, two people died after being washed away by floodwaters caused by torrential rain.

Another death was in the Czech Republic, where an elderly woman drowned in a swollen creek. Power has been cut off in many areas and main roads blocked.

More than 2,000 people have been forced from their homes in northern Hungary. One man died after a wall collapsed onto a house.

Slovakia and Serbia have also experienced bad flooding.
