TOPIC: Bosnia and Serbia critical event on may 14, 2014

Bosnia and Serbia critical event on may 14, 2014 6 years 4 months ago #126

Dear All

the Cb-Tram results for this flooding event are now available at

portal.drihm.eu:8080/liferay-portal-6.1..../guest/cb-tram-model

In the first phase of the event, say around 12 UTC on may 14th, convective activity was present on the Balkans region, especially on the sourthern portion of Serbia



Conversely two days after the convection was mainly active on the Carpatian Alps as suggested by a snapshot showing at 1345 UTC the High Resolution Visible (HRV) image with superimposed detected cells:



this image seems to suggest that the cloud system active on Serbia in the later stage of the flooding event was mainly stratiform in nature

More later

Hi All,

I noticed that there is already quite comprehensive wikipedia article describing the event:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Southeast_Europe_floods

Do we have anything to add to the article?

Dear Matti,

about this question i think we need to follow the advise of Serbian colleagues, in particular of Dr. Vladimir Dimitrijevic, Head of Division for Computer Resources and Database Management
Republic hydrometeorological service of Serbia.

We want to provide there valuable comments but in a way consistent with the operational duties and responsabilities of RHMSS in the area.

Thanks

All the best

Antonio

Here a new update from reliefweb

reliefweb.int/sites/reliefweb.int/files/...vaWaterRecession.pdf

"In the main map we show a superposition of the floodwaters detected by MODIS on 22 and 29 May, with the most recent (purple) on top. It is easy to observe the significant recession (at least according to the satellite image) of floodwaters in the Bosnian districts of Domaljevac and Samac; on the other hand, waters seem stagnant (in extent) in the areas NW of the city of Brcko and north of Bijeljina. Flood extent seems steady also in Serbia, in the worst-hit area between Sabac and Obrenovac along the Sava.

• BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA: As of 30 May the rescue operations have stopped and the Recovery phase has started. Around 20 000 people remain displaced, with 1 300 of them in 28 collective centres. Number of casualties is still unofficially 23.
Priority needs include cleaning up of animal carcasses posing health risks, hygiene and food for the displaced, managing the displaced landmines and UXO and aiding the hardly-hit agricultural sector (ECHO).

• SERBIA: Stagnation of waters along the Danube and the Sava, several cities still severely affected. Many roads are still closed by landslides and critical infrastructure is compromised.
Agricultural losses in the flooded area are widespread (UN OCHA)."
