Heavy rain & flooding continues

Published måndag 9 juli 2007 kl 12.36

After heavy flooding left one person dead in southern Sweden last week, rain has returned overnight bringing chaos to the Östergötland region.

Skåne, which saw the worst of last week’s downpours, avoided wet weather over the weekend.

Intense rainfall during the night has led to flooding in many areas of the south-east, where there are reports that over ten centimetres of rain has fallen in the last twenty-four hours.

As the rain continued early on Monday morning, emergency workers attempted to pump water out of the increasing number of cellars that have become flooded.

A fireman in the city of Motala says that all resources available to the emergency services are in use, and they require more pumps in order to alleviate the flooding.

Roads in the area have been closed, a small number of properties have been evacuated and an extreme weather warning remains in place across the south.
