Parts of the Balkans region received three months’ worth of rain in just two days last week, leading to flooding that has left at least 20 people dead, and forced tens of thousands to evacuate their homes.

The flooding, which triggered more than 200 mudslides, resulted from an area of low pressure that was cut off from the jet-stream winds that typically steer storms along from west to east in the Northern Hemisphere. Instead, this storm meandered in place for several days, drawing moisture from the Mediterranean Sea, and dumping up to a foot of rain in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
