pozega flood 1

 

16/5/2014:  We are currently having no contact with our Serbian campaigners.

Information and news is very limited.

 

Urgent message from Marie – see facebook page below.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/HelpPozegaDogs/

The Pozega pound, Nas Dom, Serbia is flooded. The dogs inside are trapped in their cages and on chains.

They are drowning.

Volunteers are being denied access, the pound will not allow them to evacuate the dogs. They tried to rescue them and were prevented by security.

The dogs will die.

This is the Pozega horror shelter, if you would like more information or to support volunteers please visit our group:

We are contacting the Serbian authorities, though it will be too late by then. We are praying the floods don’t reach our rescue kennels, but at least our dogs will get any and all help we can give them, unlike those poor innocent souls drowning in Nas Dom tonight, RIP little ones.

Storm floods Balkans, Serbia declares emergency

A massive storm has dumped record rainfalls on the Balkans, causing severe flooding, especially in Serbia, and parts of Bosnia. Schools have been closed in Serbia, where several people have drowned. Croatia is on alert.

Serbian declared a nationwide flood emergency on Thursday and asked the EU and Russia for help. Entire towns were cut off. The slow-moving cyclone is forecast to persist until the weekend.

Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said his country was facing its “biggest water catastrophe in Serbia’s history.”

Meteorologists forecast that more than double Serbia’s average rainfall for the whole of May was expected to fall within just two-and-a-half days until Friday noon.

Across Serbia, 100,000 households were without electricity. Dozens of cars and buses were stranded along flooded roads.

Schools in the Serbian capital were closed for Thursday and Friday. Major traffic routes, such as the E-75 Belgrade-Skopje highway, were submerged. Serbia’s rail link to Montenegro was severed.

Waters are rising everywhere,” said Serbian emergency official Predrag Maric. “We have engaged all our manpower.”

At least three people were killed in Serbia, including a resident near Belgrade whom firefighters said had drowned after she refused to be evacuated.

Serbian media said at least two more people had been reported missing.

High-profile societ and basketball sporting events were postponed.

Storm also grips Bosnia, Croatia

In Bosnia, to the west, bridges were swept away by swollen rivers. The central Bosnian town of Topcic Polje, near Zenica, was bisected by landslides and raging waters (pictured).

Some residents of Maglaj, 100 kilometers (60 miles) north of Bosnia’s capital, sat on roofs.

Its mayor Mehmed Mustabasic said the town was “cut off from the rest of the world.”

“We have no electricity; the phones are not working,” he said.

The Sarajevo government ordered the deployment of army helicopters for evacuations. EU troops in Bosnia joined rescue efforts.

Croatia also affected

High winds reaching 150 kilometers per hour forced the closure of sections of Croatia’s Adriatic coastal highway.

Thousands of Croatian households have also been without power since Wednesday.

Croatia’s meteorological service issued a “red alert,” saying winds were powerful enough to carry debris at deadly speed.

Slovenia was also on alert because of predicted high winds.

The storm, a slow-moving cyclone, bringing sharp drops in temperature, is expected to drift to the east over the Balkans and then south to the eastern Mediterranean by the weekend.

Europe dams its last wild rivers

Europe intends to slice through its last wild rivers with a series of dams. The new hydropower stations will deliver much-needed power to the region, but may also change the face of the Balkans forever. (07.04.2014)

  1. Why don’t these idiots let rescuers in to save those animals’ lives?? This is horrible. I hope the monsters who are letting these animals drown die the same way the animals have died. It makes no sense at all that, if there are people who are willing to rescue the animals, that they are not allowed to do so. LET THESE PEOPLE IN~~LET THEM SAVE THE LIVES OF THESE ANIMALS. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??? I’LL TELL YOU WHAT: YOU ARE HEARTLESS, COLD-BLOOED MURDERERS, THAT’S WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU. You don’t care anything about any living creature. Drowning is a horrible, horrible way to die!! SAVE THESE ANIMALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I am not a Facebook member. I would like to make donations to help the animals in Serbia but have no idea who is reputable and where to send the money. There is a collector on YouCaring who I have doubts about. If you can forward me the addresses of reputable rescues in Serbia (is there such a thing in existence!?!) I would be happy to help.

  3. It’s Serbia, it’s still 3rd world, people don’t give a shit. I hope they never join the EU

  4. oh Dear Compassionate God, pls do not let the dogs suffer more than they already have throughout their lives. Please please show them some mercy through the people and rescuers of these flood stricken countries
