In May 2014, severe flooding occurred in the northern part of Bosnia and Herzegovina, central parts of Serbia, and parts of Slavonia, Croatia. Dozens of people were killed in the floods, tens of thousands fled their homes, and several million people were directly or indirectly affected. Flooding caused enormous damage. The floods were caused by extreme rainfall and low soil infiltration rates due to previous precipitation, as well as inadequate spatial planning.
