Catastrophic floods in Serbia and Bosnia

Dear friends,

Although only five months young, dronologista blog has grown and needs a new attire.

As of 1st of September, dronologista.com moves to a new hosting, new address and slightly changes the appearance . Content will remain the same, and dronologista will continue to provide information about non-military drones only.

Enjoy!

Two days ago, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina were hit by worst floods ever recorded. Crisis is still ongoing, swollen rivers have annihilated whole towns, many people died and tens of thousands have been evacuated. Three months’ worth of rain fell on the region in just a few days, causing rivers to burst their banks and sweep into people’s homes.

Situation in Bosnia is made more difficult by extreme weather, since torrential rain have moved landmines, a remnants of a bloody war, and no one knows where they can end up.

Embassies of Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina are collecting help worldwide. Please share this information because people there are in desperate need of all sorts of things from baby food and medical supplies  to water pumps and power generators.
