Extensive flooding in northern Romania triggered landslides, leaving roads damaged and rail services disrupted.


Extensive flooding in northern Romania on Saturday night left roads damaged and disrupted rail services.

The worst affected counties were Bistrita and Maramures.

A new section of road rebuilt with €2 million of European Union funding two years ago was badly damaged.

Rivers burst their banks, leaving homes and farmland flooded and triggering landslides.

In Bistrita, an avalanche blocked the Rodna-Valea Vinului road, leaving motorists with a 30km detour.

In Maramures, two fast train services were delayed for over an hour as fallen trees were cleared from the line.
