Heavy rains caused floods in Bosnia and Herzegovina


Heavy rains that hit Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 4 and 5, 2021, caused heavy flash flooding in some parts of the country, leading to power outages and evacuations.

Hundreds of homes in the suburbs of Sarajevo, along the rivers Bosnia, Tilava and Zeleznica, and in the southwest, near the town of Konjic, had to be evacuated Friday because of incessant heavy rains that began Thursday.

Most parts of Sarajevo were left without power for several hours Friday morning because of flooding in one of the main substations on the outskirts of the city, AP reported.

Elektroprijenos, the company that transmits electricity, said heavy rain hampered attempts to reroute electricity.

A five-year-old boy was rescued by locals in Kievo, Trnovo, after his house was completely flooded.

The dramatic footage comes from Voynici, eastern Sarajevo, where a gas station and hotel are in danger of collapsing into the river, which could lead to an environmental disaster.
