On 31 July, the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Centre (EADRCC) received from Ukraine an urgent request for assistance in coping with flooding in the country.

Several days of persistent heavy rain near the Prut and Dniestr rivers caused floods in Western Ukraine. More than forty thousand houses were flooded; hundreds of roads and almost 600 hundred bridges had been damaged. Thirty people died and tens of thousands of people had been evacuated.

In line with its procedures, the EADRCC forwarded the request to NATO and partner countries and published situation reports on the development of the situation, the assistance provided and the outstanding needs.
