The Danube flow in the area where the river enters Romanian territory, at Bazias in western Romania, was receding down to 15,200 cubic meters/second on Wednesday morning, but was still high above the multi-annual monthly average of 7900 cm/s.

According to the Environment Ministry, the flow was rising downstream from the Portile de Fier dams, especially in the areas of Gruia-Giurgiu and Braila-Tulcea.

Hydrologists also announced that the flow level will remain above flooding quotas in the counties of Mehedinti, Dolj, Olt, Teleorman, Giurgiu, Calarasi, Ialomita, Constanta, Braila, Galati and Tulcea.

Meanwhile, meteorologists announced that starting Wednesday morning to early Thursday it will rain countinuously throughout the country, including in the Danube-flooded areas.
