(27 Feb 2018) A sudden freeze and heavy snowfall at the tail end of a relatively mild winter caused traffic disruptions, locked people indoors and prompted authorities to declare a state of emergency in parts of Croatia and Bosnia on Tuesday. The mountainous Gorski Kotar region in western Croatia has been buried in over two metres (6.5 feet) of snow, and clearing services are rushing to clear the roofs of houses in the area to save them from collapsing. About 1,000 Croatian soldiers have joined efforts to clear the snow in the worst-affected areas. In Bosnia, snow clogged roads connecting the capital Sarajevo with the southern part of the country, while authorities in several cities in the western Krajina region declared state of emergency and ordered schools to remain shut. The Arctic storm which has hit Europe has caused temperatures to fall well below freezing, with a low of minus-20 degrees centigrade in some parts of the Balkans. The freeze is expected to continue for much of the week.

Sarajevo (Cyrillic: Сарајево, pronounced [sǎrajeʋo]; see names in other languages) is the capital and largest city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a population of 275,524 in its current administrative limits. The Sarajevo metropolitan area, including Sarajevo Canton and East Sarajevo as well as some neighboring municipalities is home to 555,210 inhabitants.[clarification needed] Nestled within the greater Sarajevo valley of Bosnia, it is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps and situated along the Miljacka River in the heart of Southeastern Europe and the Balkans. Sarajevo is the leading political, social and cultural center of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a prominent center of culture in the Balkans, with its region-wide influence in entertainment, media, fashion, and the arts. Due to its long and rich history of religious and cultural diversity, Sarajevo was sometimes called the "Jerusalem of Europe" or "Jerusalem of the Balkans". It is the only major European city to have a mosque, Catholic church, Orthodox church and synagogue within the same neighborhood. A regional center in education, the city is also home to the Balkans' first institution of tertiary education in the form of an Islamic polytechnic called the Saraybosna Osmanlı Medrese, today part of the University of Sarajevo. Although settlement in the area stretches back to prehistoric times, the modern city arose as an Ottoman stronghold in the 15th century. Sarajevo has attracted international attention several times throughout its history. In 1885, Sarajevo was the first city in Europe and the second city in the world to have a full-time electric tram network running through the city, following San Francisco.In 1914, it was the site of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, which sparked World War I, after which the city experienced a period of stagnation as part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The establishment of the Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina within the Second Yugoslavia led to a massive expansion of Sarajevo, the constituent republic's capital, which hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics. For 1,425 days, from April 1992 to February 1996, the city suffered the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare, during the Bosnian War and the breakup of Yugoslavia. Sarajevo has been undergoing post-war reconstruction, and is the fastest growing city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The travel guide series, Lonely Planet, has named Sarajevo as the 43rd best city in the world, and in December 2009 listed Sarajevo as one of the top ten cities to visit in 2010.] In 2011, Sarajevo was nominated to be the European Capital of Culture in 2014 and will be hosting the European Youth Olympic Festival in 2019 Minor With Cricket by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

In 2014 the Vrbas River in Bosnia and Herzegovina overflowed its banks after heavy rains, leaving twenty people dead. Climate change is making such extreme weather more likely. That is why the country is investing in flood protection.

English/Nat The heaviest snowfall in more than a decade is causing chaos in central Bosnia as NATO prepares for one of its biggest operations since the Second World War. About half a meter (two feet) of snow fell in 24 hours in the capital, Sarajevo, prompting city officials to declare a state of emergency. U-N and NATO forces, preparing to handover to the new NATO-led mission, said the heavy snow could slow things down. Blizzards have brought most of Bosnia to a standstill. In Tuzla, where the bulk of the U-S contingent is to be based, overnight storms looked as if they might bring the military airlift to a halt. 16 flights -- bringing in equipment and around 70 U-S troops -- were delayed as snow blanketed the run way. But U-S Air Force pilots finally managed to land several C-130 cargo planes, using a tactical navigation radar system set up just a few days ago. The first flight arrived at midday. It broke cloud at 200 feet and was forced to make a sudden right turn to get back on the lane. The plane landed safely on one wheel. Military personnel fear the weather will affect their operations. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It definitely make things dramatic because the visibility has been reduced due to the snow and also the ceiling has dropped, that causes a big problem, that's one of the concerns we have of the bat, that's why we brought the equipment." SUPER CAPTION: Capt. Anthony Davit, U-S Army Three more flights were expected as ground personnel rushed to clear the runway. In the Bosnian town of Gornji Vakuf, it was not just a case of digging the car out. It was a question of making sure you'd found the right vehicle in the right place. Three feet of snow has fallen around Gornji Vakuf -- the headquarters of the British army in Bosnia. The treacherous driving conditions have left scores of cars in ditches. And no one enjoys the task of looking after stranded U-N vehicles. The army's recovery vehicles have been busy all day pulling cars, land rovers and other U-N vehicles back onto the road. Even some pedestrians are having problems getting around. If the snow continues, it could bog down the new NATO-led mission. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's going to slow us down. I think we'll get through it. I don't think there'll be any problems, it's just going to keep putting a time frame difference on it. We're going to be slow." SUPER CAPTION: Staff Sergeant Tony Angel, Royal Engineers For the time being, they're continuing -- despite the weather. Others have just abandoned any attempt to get around on wheels.

21 December 2018, Bas Timmer, founder and designer of Sheltersuit handed out 650 suits to refugees in Sarajevo. They are stuck all along the border and have been desperately waiting for weeks, months, or even years to receive just the slightest bit of help. A life challenged by the cold and darkness of winter. We wanted to keep them warm with our Sheltersuit, a sustainable jacket with a zipped sleeping bag (optional). This set provides protection against harsh weather conditions. The product is wind and water resistant and is manufactured by refugees living in the Netherlands.
