Abstract

The article analyzes the exceptionally rainy year 2014 in the south-west of Romania, year in which many rainfall records exceeded, for the whole series of meteorological observations at the meteorological stations in Oltenia. The year was marked by 23 excessively rainy periods where there were floods because of the exceptional amounts of precipitations. There were 21 rainfall records, far exceeding the wettest year 2005. Compared to the year 2005, floods were not so catastrofal due to the wide distribution of these rainfall throughout the year. Like 2005, the year 2014 was globally classified as the hottest year, and in Romania, like in most Europe, it was a normal warm year, but exceptionally rainy.
