Serbia still needs your help! Please share this and donate! I am terrified of how little attention it is getting - no international media shares the real horror of this, so I am still hoping at least social notworks can!
Whole towns are cut of. Thousands of people are out of their homes. Lots of people need shelter, food and hygiene. Rain stopped, but for them the horrors just began.
Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina are currently in a real pickle. Since I’m Serbian, I can only talk in detail about our situation, but it pretty much is the same in our neighbor countries.
For the past few days, we had an incredible amount of rain. We’re flooded; in Serbia, two towns are pretty much submerged at this point, might as well start call them Atlantis. Schools everywhere are closed as well.
These are the worst flood these parts remember, it’s unprecedented! And it’s horrible; entire towns are evacuated, people are stuck on roofs, unable to move.
There are major power outages and drinking water is currently unsanitary for ingestion in most parts. One of the power plants in Serbia, near one of the submerged cities (Obrenovac) is currently at risk of breaking down if the water level rises any more; which practically means we’ll be out of power in the entire area.
Our biggest power plant (a hydroelectric one in Djerdap) can’t produce energy because all it’s resources are focused on letting the water get out as quickly as possible through the damn because otherwise everything will be flooded.
So yes. Basically: Completely flooded, two towns are submerged completely, drinking water is now mostly unsanitary for humans, and there is a huge risk even more areas will lose electric power thanks to the growing level of water.
So far, some countries have sent help, tho after Serbia had asked for help (Russia, Slovenia), and the EU is being strangely quiet about this.
Try to get this out. Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and also Croatia as well, are in a horrible predicament.
My dear followers, please spread the news about the situation in Serbia and Bosnia! Help is needed! It may seem as a joke to some of you, but I assure you it’s really serious! Many lives, homes, even cities and villages are wiped out by massive quantities of water! Our family members are travelling to other cities, carrying food, clothes and bottled water to help as much as they can in rescue efforts! Please reblog, I will say it once more, help is needed!!!!! Spread the word!
My dear friends, Please join me in supporting this disaster relief. A state of emergency has been declared in Bosnia due the greatest flooding disaster in Balkan’s history. This is a country who went through a war and genocide in the 90s. Its people were in the beggining stages of moving past t…
