storms, floods….

Flooded houses, playgrounds, streets, cars …The biggest damage to yesterday was caused by the inhabitants of Borca, but also the surrounding settlements that are still under water. In this part of the capital there are a large number of teams of various city companies, members of the Emergency Situations Department, but the situation is still very difficult.

The day after the heavy rain that hit Belgrade, a large amount of water was kept at some locations in the capital.
In Borca, where it was most critical last night, the consequences are being rectified, and at the very entrance into this Belgrade settlement, from the direction of Pupin’s Bridge, there is a warehouse of timber under water.
9,000 households without electricity, while now “seven large buildings are out of function.”
After the enormous precipitation, the most difficult situation is on the left bank of the Danube in the settlements of Borca, Kotež and Krnjača, where water is pumped from flooded households and the provision of roads for normal traffic.
In these parts of Belgrade yesterday, in one hour, 100 liters of rain per square meter fell.

  1. I sympathize with you Branka, although we here, in Canada, have not had such a storm yet. But in the spring thaw, there were a lot of flooding, almost 10,000 to 30,000 people moved out of their homes because of flooding and loss of power almost everywhere near the Ottawa River and others. The Canadian army was here to help erected sand bags dunes to help keep the water out but to no avail most of the time. There was an estimated (if I remember weel) about 35,000,000 cdn dollars total damage found plus now they have to repair a dike that almost collapsed under the flooding waters. I certainly hope the situation will get better soon for you and your city…

  2. That day I was in New Belgrade with my husband and daughter. We were stuck in the car .. It was really unpleasant. We managed to get out somehow, but until the weather stabilizes, I’m not going anywhere else.

  3. I saw in reports on TV what floods were affecting Belgrade and its surroundings …. even with us the storms were just not so intense … I hope that you did not suffer so badly, dear Branka
