Albania, which relies on hydropower to generate all its electricity, was badly affected by the 2022 drought. The government needed to import more power.

KESH, a state-owned utility producing power, stated that the recent rains had been filling its reservoirs. It also had to release water to keep two of its dams afloat.

Although floods were also felt in neighboring Kosovo, no deaths or other damage was reported.
