At least 15 dead in Macedonian flash floods

By Reuters | August 7th 2016

SKOPJE: Fifteen people died in flash floods overnight in the Macedonian capital of Skopje and six more were missing, state news agency MIA quoted police as saying on Sunday.

Cars were underwater and the ring road around Skopje was severely damaged by the floods, with some suburbs hit particularly hard.

The rain had stopped on Sunday morning but more rain was forecast for the evening.

"It is very sad, there are several victims," a police official told Reuters. He could not confirm the exact numbers quoted by the state news agency.
