Thousands crammed into boats and army trucks as they fled their homes in Serbia and Bosnia on Sunday after record rainfall turned the Sava river into a deadly torrent and caused the worst floods in more than a century. 

Bosnian people look at a flooded portion of a road after the rise of the Tinja river destroyed a bridge connecting the Northern-Bosnian town of Brcko to the town of Orasje, on May 18, 2014

Officials say the disaster has killed at least 44 people so far. Some towns have been completely cut off and rescue teams feared the worst as they were finally able to move in.
