The Environment Ministry issued an yellow code alert for floods in five Romanian counties: Mehedinti, Teleorman, Olt, Giurgiu and Dolj. The warning is valid on Wednesday, from 11:00h to 24.00h. Because of the rain about to fall during the following hours, combined with the melting 20 centimeters of snow, rivers will abruptly grow in volume, the National Hydro Institute warned.
