Second flood wave inundates houses in Poland
Thousands of firefighters and soldiers are strengthening dikes that are crumbling in a second wave of massive flooding in southern Poland following weeks of torrential rains.
Spokesman for the firefighters Pawel Fratczak said Sunday that some 3,000 people have been evacuated from eight villages after the Vistula River spilled over near Szczucin, where massive flooding first hit in May.
The Vistula was also inundating the streets and house in a part of Sandomierz, after dikes repaired after the May flooding, succumbed under new flood wave.
Some villages were cut off and relying on army helicopters to drop supplies after parts of roads were washed away.
Meteorologists are warning of more rain.
