Balkan countries of Serbia and Bosnia have been battered by the worst floods in 120 years after the region in six days since May 14 received rainfall that it normally gets over three months,officials said.
Thousands of people crammed into boats and army trucks fled their homes in Serbia and Bosnia Sunday after record rainfall turned the Sava river into a deadly torrent and caused the worst floods in more than a century.
Landslides triggered by unprecedented rains in Bosnia have left hundreds of people homeless, officials said today, while thousands more have fled their homes in neighbouring Croatia and Serbia as Balkan countries battle the region`s worst flooding since modern records began.
Tens of thousands fled their homes on Saturday in Bosnia and Serbia, evacuated by boat or helicopter as rising waters surged into villages and towns. Authorities said the record flooding killed at least 20 people and the death toll could rise further.
