Drone video shows submerged mosque in Albania floods

STORY: Some schools were closed in the affected areas and Albanian emergency services had begun to evacuate people close to the town of Shkodra.

Albania, which relies on hydroelectric for all its domestic power production, has seen its worst drought in years during 2022, forcing the government to import more power.

State-owned power utility KESH said the rain in the past 24 hours have been filling its reservoirs and although it was producing at full capacity it also had to discharge more water to keep two of its dams safe.
