Very Heavy Rain Causes Flash Floods in Slovenia's Capital

Ljubljana, Slovenia (AP) -- Very heavy rainfall has caused flash floods in Slovenia's capital Ljubljana that interrupted a theatre show, surged inside homes, hospitals and other buildings, and forced hundreds of interventions by emergency crews, authorities said Thursday.

The sudden storm caused the floods overnight after huge quantities of rain fell within a short period of time, officials said. Slovenia's environmental authorities described the rain as a “once in two centuries event.”
