    [BREAKING NEWS] Bosnia & Herzegovina Catastrophic Flood.

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Read more about the record flooding and see photos on CNN.com.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    The country has already been through enough, in 1992, a civil-war erupted in former Yugoslav Republic of Bosnia & Herzegovina. War ended in 1995 leaving the citizens with a struggle back home in a bad economy. And now, to add on to the trouble there is a huge, massive, storm that hit Bosnia, having almost all of the country flooded. Worst flood in 120 years! 2 months of rain have been in Bosnia in 2 days. They lost almost everything and its heart breaking. People are out there left with no homes, no drinks, no food, most importantly people are out there dying! The county is lacking electricity, our country is using agriculture to survive. Many, I should say most places in Bosnia, the only way to get to the town is by boat. Bridges are being torn away, same with houses. Who knows how many people, kids, are missing, dead from all this disaster. People left stranded on roofs, sleeping on roofs in the horiible weather. They havent seen the sun in days. 400 schools have been closed down. They are facing the biggest and worst water catastophe in history of all Balkan Region. Please help. Send food, drinks, clothing, helicopters, boats, water pumps. Anything that'll help, they've lost it all. Very heartbreaking.
