According to the Civil Protection Administration, the County Center 112 received dozens of calls from the area of ​​Nova Gradiška and surrounding settlements due to the large amount of water.

A dozen basements in Nova Gradiška were flooded, which is why firefighters, a utility company and Hrvatske vode were hired.

“So far, over 80 facilities have been reported, but the rain is still falling, so we expect that there will be more.

As the civil protection announced on Twitter, in Beli Manastir, after heavy rains, two people were trapped because of the water in the underpass.

Rainfall in Serbia until Tuesday

Meteorologist Marko Cubrilo revealed what kind of Serbia the weather expects in the coming days.

“For now, the strongest instabilities are expected, first over the central parts of BiH, central and eastern Serbia, and then slowly spread over almost the entire region in the afternoon. During the night, heavy rainfall would cover the central and western parts of Croatia, as well as the west of BiH. The precipitation will have a very unusual direction of delivery, considering that it comes to us as part of the southeastern and eastern current that occurs as a consequence of a cyclone over the Adriatic, “wrote Čubrilo on his Facebook profile.

“Everywhere where over 50 millimeters of sediment falls, there can be problems with excess water, and where it falls over 100 millimeters, unfortunately, local floods are likely. I emphasize that these will be local phenomena and that large rivers such as the Sava, Una, Bosnia, Drina, Sava, Kolubara, Danube, Morava (all three), Peka, Timok, Tisa, Mlava… will almost certainly not overflow, but their water levels will be on the rise “, writes our meteorologist Marko Čubrilo on his Facebook profile.

On the other hand, mountain rivers and streams, as well as smaller tributaries of the mentioned rivers, could overcome their beds and the conditions of sudden torrential floods.

“This is especially true for western BiH, parts of central and eastern BiH, western and southwestern Serbia, where 100 to 170 millimeters of sediment would most likely fall, which are really huge precipitation totals. For now, a catastrophe the size of the one that hit parts of Germany is not expected because these totals will mostly accumulate in 4-5 days, but in some places that are close to the flows that are prone to spills, there can be big problems, “said Cubrilo.

He adds that in the Pannonian plain, the occurrence of basement waters and water in the field will be possible, but the biggest problem will be the gusts of hailstorms, which will do great damage. He notes that it is not possible to say with certainty where the storm will form, so it is possible that there will be a deviation.

“The wind will mostly be from the east, and in the zone of heavy rain and showers it can be stormy. Until the middle of next week, the maximums are mostly below +30 degrees Celsius, and the freshest day will be Monday or Tuesday, when the maximums would mostly stay below +25 degrees Celsius, “writes Čubrilo.

From Tuesday next week, it will be mostly dry and warmer, but for now, great heat is not expected, while the warmest should be around July 25, after which it can be a bit refreshing, reports Blic.

“The next days bring very abundant, sometimes for July and record amounts of rain, if you are in one of the risk areas, take all possible prevention measures, because when the water starts to turn blue, there is no more time,” advises the meteorologist.
