September 8, 2014

The heaviest rainfall in recorded history caused widespread floods and some 2,000 landslides across Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in May 2014, destroying everything in their path and affecting one-quarter of the country’s population. Bridges, roads and other infrastructure were damaged extensively. Some 80,000 homes were lost or damaged. Businesses and farms incurred minor to total losses of crops and animals, places of business, inventories, equipment and machinery, and most businesses were still not functioning three months later. Damages and losses are estimated at more than $2 billion. New flooding in early August was a setback to recovery efforts, and in some areas was more damaging than the May floods.
