BALKAN NOISE for the #SupportBalkanFloodRelief
SOME BACKGROUND ON FLOOD DISASTER
In mid May 2014, multiple floods affected a large area of Southeastern and Central Europe called the Balkans. A low-pressure area named "Yvette" brought the worst of the flooding from 14–16 May. This cyclone is called "Tamara" in Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia. Rainfall in Bosnia and Serbia was the heaviest in 120 years of recorded weather measurements. By 20 May, at least 49 people had died as a result of the flooding, and hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. Flooding is still ongoing with Official counts indicate over 1.6 million people affected in Bosnia and Serbia, after only a week of flooding.
Floodwaters caused over 2,000 landslides across the Balkan region, spreading damage across multiple towns and villages.The towns of Doboj in Bosnia and Obrenovac in Serbia account for most victims, after being overflown by several meters high waters from nearby rivers.
