Since August 2011 drought conditions have set in Romania, particularly the South and East of the country.


Practically since the 16th of August only 14mm of rain fell in Bucharest with only 7mm during the month of September. As of today the 2nd of October there are 26 straight days without any precipitation.

There is no rain in the forecast until at least Oct 9th so the drought will intensify. I will keep an update.
