During July 2010, Gheorghe Flutur, president of Suceava judet, told the Mediafax news agency his region was one of the worst hit in the country in the morning of the 29th as he co-ordinated local flood relief work in his stricken county. Later that day the River Siret threatened to break through the dykes protecting the town of Șendreni, as locals and emergency services reinforced the dykes with truckloads of sandbags to prevent the river breaking out and flooding the town.
