This EO-1 satellite image acquired May 23, 2014, shows the town of Vidovice, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The city is surrounded by and submerged under floodwater.

NASA’s Earth Observing-1 satellite shows how three months’ worth of rain in just three days has caused swollen rivers and devastating flooding across the Balkan region of Europe.

This EO-1 satellite image collected May 23, 2014, provides a wider view of the Vidovice area. Muddy, brown water expands out from the river channel on both sides.

The floods have triggered landslides that displaced landmines and warning signs. One mine exploded in the Brcko region. The floods are expected to continue with ongoing heavy rain throughout the Balkans.
