The death toll from a week of severe flooding in Romania has risen to at least 22. The government says it's requesting aid from the EU to help repair damaged roads, houses and crops.
The authorities say a damage assessment is not available as the floods are still critical. This is especially the case on the Siret River in northern and eastern Romania.
The Danube River, meanwhile, has exceeded the highest levels recorded in 2006 around the towns of Galati and Braila.
Flood water, is now pouring into the Siret, prompting authorities to start stacking half a million sand bags along its banks. About 7,000 people have been evacuated in recent days. Around 3,000 houses have been flooded and 200 destroyed.
