Serbia declared a national emergency as rivers across the flooded roads and bridges, shutting down schools and cutting off power. SERBIA NEEDS HELP!
Serbia declared a national emergency on Thursday as rain-swollen rivers across the Balkans flooded roads and bridges, shutting down schools and cutting off power.
Three people have reportedly drowned and more than 3,000 evacuated following flooding caused by torrential rain.
Hundreds of people had to be evacuated by military helicopters after meteorologists said the rainfall was the most since measuring started 120 years ago.
Authorities in Belgrade said the average rainfall of a two-month period hit the city in just 40 hours.
Surging water coursed through towns and villages, overflowing across streets and into homes, sweeping bridges off their moorings and causing landslides across the region.
