The water level of the river Sava is expected to rise up to 6,5m by tomorrow in the town of Šabac. More than 15 000 people have so far been evacuated from the most dangerous areas in Serbia. Last might, 88 thousand households were without electricity and more than 1500 buildings were flooded. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, the situation is most dire in the north of the country, where more than 5000 buildings are flooded. The water level of the river Sava has risen in eastern Croatia and there is a danger of floods in Slavonija.
