100 homes flooded in northeastern Macedonia

Kumanovo, Macedonia (dpa) - Some 100 houses in the northeastern Macedonian town of Kumanovo were flooded on Friday when torrential rain caused two local rivers to overflow.
There were no casualties reported, but the government sent several army units in the flooded area to contain the damage from the Kojnarka and Lipkovka rivers.

A total of 500 houses have suffered serious damage in two bouts of flooding in the predominantly Roma neighbourhoods of Kumanovo.
