We had collected lot of information resources on flood / disaster remediation and developed an informal (ad hoc) online network since the 500-year flood in Prague and parts of the Czech Republic (back in August 2002).
Please ask you contacts in Bosnia what they may need. Money always helps! Can you ask AIHA to set up fund for them?
Red Cross and Red Crescent are always first ones to respond, and personal and corporate donation to them would help.
Does NATO/UN still have troops in this area? They should contact U.S. NIOSH at get some field assessments done by them.. U.S. NIOSH had responded to many disasters over the years... most recently in St. Lucia (December 2013).

See below for an update on the disastrous flooding occurring in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Photos are attached, and if the listserv removes them, I can forward them if you request individually. A Natural State of Disaster has been declared.
According to meteorologist Zeljko Majstorovic this is the worst rainfall in the country since 1894, when weather measurements started to be recorded.
The worst flood affected areas are Maglaj, Doboj, Zavidovici, Olovo, Kakanj (photos attached). These areas remained without electricity, water and phone service.
Members of the BIH army, civil protection units and police were on the ground helping the civilian population.
Army helicopters evacuated dozens of people in Maglaj, where the Bosna river swelled to record levels, reaching the first floors of apartment buildings. The similar situation is in Doboj.
The state of emergency has been declared on the territory of FBiH as well in many other municipalities. Also, landslides were reported in many areas.
Meteorologists announced continuation of precipitation until the end of the week.
