Two days ago we had floods in Slovenia. Look this awesome man, how he rescue his dog

»In the moment water furiously penetrated in the yard and towards the house. No one has warned us, it was terrible! I've heard Rambo crying. He could not go out of lumber room where he remained trapped. He could not open the door becuase of high water. I broke trough, grabbed him and we went dificult way to get through to safety. It was difficult, conditions were catastrophic« said 70 years old Peter Žlahtič. And added that he did not hesitate a second rescuing his friend, who is now very scared because of dramatic moments that they have experienced. »I've saved Rambo. Today I him, tomorow he might me!«

Nobody get killed in Slovenia. This is good news. There was one rescue of one family with the helicopter from the roof in the midle of the night. The damage is over 210mio€. Me and my familly were away from main floods. But the river were furious. And day after the main floods Allgero went as usual in the river. And the river toke him for about 20m and then he came out on the other bank. And then he could not get back. But finaly he succed to get back safely. It was horrible. Now he is more precausious.
