Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia experiencing devastating floods

Monday, May 22, 2023


Like Northern Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia are experiencing devastating floods, which have killed at least 14 people and forced 36,000 to evacuate their homes.

The United Kingdom government has issued a travel warning, cautioning against visiting flood-affected areas and highlighting potential disruptions to traffic.

Earlier this week, 6 months’ worth of rain fell in 36 hours in the region of Emilia-Romagna. Many rivers have burst their banks, submerging entire towns and making some villages and hamlets entirely inaccessible. Though thousands of volunteers have started cleanup, the region remains on red alert today (21 May).

“Apocalyptic” floods and landslides have also wreaked havoc in Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia, with experts warning that climate-related disasters are on the rise in southern Europe.

In the region’s capital city of Bologna, the tourist board has urged citizens to limit their travel to essential journeys only.
