Volunteers use a rubber boat to evacuate residents from a flooded area in Obrenovac, some 30 kilometers (18 miles) southwest of Belgrade, Serbia, Sunday, May 18, 2014. Floodwaters triggered more than 2,000 landslides across much of the Balkans on Sunday, laying waste to entire towns and villages and disturbing land mines left over from the regionÕs 1990s war, along with warning signs that marked the unexploded devices.
