State of Emergency Declared in Serbia amid Deadly, Historic Flooding

“What we are facing is the biggest water catastrophe in Serbia’s history. This is the greatest flooding disaster ever. Not only in the past 100 years […] this has never happened in Serbia’s history […] more rain has fallen in one day than in four months,” said the Serbian Prime Minister.

Hundreds of people in the Balkans have been evacuated as rain-swollen rivers flooded roads, bridges and railways, cutting off power and phone service, and forcing schools to close, AP reported.

Floodwaters have submerged large swathes of land isolating numerous towns and villages and killing at least 6 people, according to local reports.

The Bosnian government is using the military to help thousands of civilians whose homes were inundated, especially in the central and eastern regions, Reuters reported.

“This is the worst rainfall in Bosnia since 1894, when weather measurements started to be recorded,” said a Bosnian meteorologist, forecasting the rain would continue until the end of the week.

Heavy flooding has been reported also in large parts of Romania, reports said.
