34 European flood victims

Flood victims waded into their homes to shovel out mud and clean-up crews cleared the debris from streets after heavy rains deluged central and southern Europe, killing 34 people.

More than 250 residents were evacuated from a submerged section of Bern, the Swiss capital – many of them by helicopter – and Romanian officials said seven people drowned when waters surged into their homes, Ireland Online informs.

The storms have killed 34 people across Europe this week, authorities said, warning the number could climb as the missing were accounted for.

Pravda.ru reported earlier, that worst hit was Romania, with 25 dead and thousands of homes inundated. Austria, Bulgaria and Switzerland reported a total of nine dead.
