Bulgaria’s weather forecasters have issued a warning of a risk of floods in the evening hours of June 3 and the early morning of June 4. The warning follows recent days of heavy rain that have hard-hit several places in Bulgaria, notably second city Plovdiv. For June 4, the “Code Yellow” warning of potentially dangerous weather has been issued for 15 districts in Bulgaria because of forecast thunderstorms and heavy rain. The districts include Sofia – both the city and the district – and Plovdiv, and are all in the western half of Bulgaria. On June 3, a partial state of emergency was declared in Gorna Oryahovitsa municipality because of complications caused by the heavy rain.
