Rain creates chaos in BiH: Flooded settlements and roads (VIDEO)
The rain that has been falling on the entire territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina since yesterday has caused major traffic problems, while many settlements in Sarajevo have been flooded and traffic blocked.
A wandering situation has been declared in the Pale area.
The rain that fell during the night flooded the roads in the capital of BiH, and many Sarajevo settlements are under water this morning, the media report. The rivers Željeznica and Tilava also caused problems, which caused floods in the settlements of Otes, Vlakovo, Butmir and other places.
Traffic in the wider area of Sarajevo has also slowed down. Due to the spill of water on the road and landslides, the traffic on the section Trnovo-Sarajevo was suspended, and the alternative route is through Igman.
The traffic was also suspended on the section of the regional road Konjic-Boracko jezero.
The Federal Hydrometeorological Institute issued a red warning this morning for heavy rainfall, stormy wind and the appearance of landslides.
The expected amount of precipitation in the area of Mostar is between 40 and 60, locally 80 liters per square meter. At the same time, between 15 and 30 liters per square meter are expected in Sarajevo today.
The mayor of the municipality of Pale, Boško Jugović, declared an emergency situation in the area of the municipality, because in some parts several settlements of the river overflowed, so that the torrents endangered the property of citizens and economic entities.
He said that the competent services are monitoring the situation and trying to prevent greater consequences as much as possible, although it is very difficult to act in a situation when heavy rainfall does not subside.
