Weathering the Storm: Disaster Recovery in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Between May 14 and May 17, more rain fell in Bosnia and Herzegovina than typically falls in three months. Rivers swelled, mountains eroded, and disaster struck the country. Floods ravaged towns and inundated newly-plowed fields. Landslides destroyed roads and other vital infrastructure. People fled their homes, seeking dry land and shelter. The results were devastating – more than 20 deaths, 90,000 people displaced around the country, and billions of dollars in damages across the region.
