This paper aims to analyze, especially in terms of space, the flood phenomenon in Cernăteşti locality, on May 29, 2012. In the context of high intensity torrential rains over a short period of time, in this period occurred flash-floods of high intensity on Slănic river, producing catastrophic floods in Cernăteşti locality. Thus, for a rigorous analysis of spatial occurrence of these hydrological risk phenomena, were used detailed cartographic materials, such as the 1:5000 topographic plans

Also, we analyzed the synoptic conditions directly responsible for the extent of the flooding process, which resulted in disastrous effects on the socioeconomic component. The results certified that, due to the synergy between torrential rainfall and the local morphometry, 60 ha of the Slănic flood plain sector was flooded in the area of Cernăteşti locality, with more than 20 buildings and almost 500 m of the local accessiblity infrastucture damaged.
