Emergency “code yellow” warnings in northern Bulgaria have been extended to several new areas after a violent storm caused widespread flooding and damage.

“Code yellow” suggests weather conditions might pose danger to people.

This week’s hailstorms and torrential rain were described as “unprecedented”.

At Lovech in the north, the water level reached 1.5 metres in some places. A state of emergency was declared in the town.

Earlier this week a hailstorm killed one person and injured 40 in the capital Sofia.
