My dear friends all over the world
I don’t have many followers, but I hope some of them will reblog this post.
I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina. That is a small country, somewhere in Europe, between Croatia and Serbia. Last week, all three countries faced the most devastating storm ever. There are large areas flooded, death count is still unknown, entire cities are almost wiped out. I saw some post on internet there wasn’t many news in world media about this, but I don’t know is this true. Most destroyed areas were farms or fields, and people didn’t have time to remove animals. Right now, volonters are trying to clean streets of flooded towns, to remove dead animals and prevent outbreak of infections. Water in flooded areas is undrinkable, houses, farms and fields are destroyed, people lost everything they had. I will include picture of flooded areas under this text.
Next problem is mudslides. Entire village is covered in one of this slide. In my canton, there is almost 1 000 active slides, one village near my town is destroyed and some houses in other villages. Town next to mine is in ruins, everything looks like something from apocaliptic movie. I beg you to spread the word, to tell everybody who wants to listen about this.
Additional problem, for those who doesn’t know, Bosnia was in war 20 years ago. Result of this is a lot of remaining minefields. Mudslides and flood shifted those mines, so nobody knows where are those mines now. Amount of rain in one day was our average year amount of rain, and one week before flood we had severe rains for almost a week. This kind of flood has never been recorded in this area. Sometimes, during severe rain, some rivers made flood around them, but nothing like this.
Perhaps your media doesn’t show full amount of catastrophy, but you can google Serbia floods, Bosnia floods and Croatia floods and see for yourself.
Tell the world, don’t let them hide us behind some stupid news about nothing important.
I saw wonderful things here, you kids restored my faith in future of mankind. I know you will not stay aside this time.
