The Balkan region of Southeast Europe is experiencing its worst drought in 40 years. Potato and corn crops appear to be the worst hit. In Serbia, the yields of the country’s main exports, corn and soy, are predicted to be down by 50%, creating losses of $1 billion (€800 million). In Bosnia, the drought has destroyed 70% of the vegetables and corn. Water levels are also at record lows. In Serbia and Bulgaria, the water level of the Danube is below the level for safe shipping. Lake and rivers have dried up and hydropower is being cut back because of lack of water.
