‘Catastrophic’ Floods Hit the Balkans

Tens of thousands of Bosnians were forced to evacuate their homes on Sunday, as floodwaters caused more than 3,000 landslides in the country and neighboring Serbia. Helicopter airlifts plucked families from rooftops as the worst floodwaters in the area’s history destroyed entire towns. At least 12 have been counted dead, but the crisis is far from over: Floodwaters are threatening major power plants and have unearthed land mines leftover from the region’s war in the 1990s.
