FOUR DEAD, MANY MISSING IN CENTRAL EUROPE FLOODS



Four people have died and at least eight more were missing as torrential rains lashed central Europe, forcing hundreds to evacuate their homes after floods and landslides.

Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic sent in army units to help with rescue efforts after rains reached record levels in some areas, while hundreds of roads have been closed and rail services cut.

The banks of the mighty Danube River burst in one area in Germany, and dozens of towns were put on flood alert across a large swathe of central Europe.
