A series of flood warnings have been issued across Romania over the last couple of days due to the thawing of snow in the first sunny days in weeks. Floods have already affected the districts of Mehedinti, Ialomita and Dolj in southern Romania, as well as Harghita at the core of the Romanian territory.

Over 300 households, dozens of roads and some 3,000 hectares of agricultural land have been affected across the country.

Danube levels have increased dramatically and the latest warnings say several townships near the Portile de Fier II hydro-power station face high flood risks. Down the Danube, in the Fetesti area, Danube levels are also closely watched.

And in the district of Buzau falling rocks have affected traffic on roads through mountaineous areas. Landslide warnings were issued in the district of Harghita as well.
