Electricity and drinking water are scarce. Food. Blankets and clothes. Boats for evacuation. Medical supplies. Beds and accommodation. Diapers and milk for babies.

The town of Obrenovac, in northwest Serbia, was among the worst hit by historic floods that wreaked havoc across the Balkans. The flooding killed at least 40 people, including 14 in Obrenovac. Balkan states are struggling to cope as floodwaters from the Sava River keep spreading. The waters have even dislodged landmines left from the Bosnian War.Receding floodwater in Bosnia and Serbia is revealing the next shock: recovery from the historic flood will cost billions of euros that neither of the countries has. More than 25,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in Serbia and Bosnia in the worst floods to hit the Balkans in more than a century. The Sava river, swollen by the heaviest rains since records began 120 years ago, has wreaked havoc in Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia since Friday. At least 37 people have drowned or been killed by landslides mainly in Serbia and Bosnia.
