[greenyes] Urgent


JASA TOMIC, Serbia and Montenegro - Hundreds of homes
were flooded and dozens of livestock drowned in a
village in eastern Serbia on Thursday after the river
Tamis burst its banks overnight, witnesses said.


The flooding, which is threatening to spread to many
other villages, was thought to be the worst in the
area in 40 years.

Most of the 3,000 residents of Jasa Tomic fled to
nearby towns, but some stayed behind to help the army
dig a ditch to channel the water back into the river.

The flooding was caused by the river overflowing in
neighbouring Romania which is 9 km (5.5 miles) away.

Three dozen houses in the village had completely
disappeared under the water. Basketball nets in the
sports ground barely protruded above some two metres
of water.
