I am from Slovenia and I don't remember in the Past this kind of severe Floods and Storms around this parts. In past few years, at the end of Summer
this part of Europe is always affected by extreme rain, that causes Floods.

away just about everything.
Still in danger are Poland and Chech Republic.
Yet on the other side of the continent Portugal burns in the flames of forrest fires.
