Several EU countries including the UK have provided equipment to help Serbia and Bosnia recover from severe flooding.
They sent high capacity water pumps, rescue boats, helicopters and operational teams to the Balkan countries following urgent requests.
Heavy rainfall over the last week has led to several deaths in the two countries, along with major damage to infrastructure.
The EU said on Saturday that a series of landslides in Bosnia had caused houses to collapse and damage to roads.
It said Serbia suffered four months’ rainfall in one day, leaving 300,000 homes without electricity.
News agency Reuters reported that soldiers had installed sandbag barriers around the perimeter of a power plant east of Belgrade to protect it from the swollen River Mlava.
Several flood alerts were in place on Monday morning.
EU commissioner for international cooperation, humanitarian aid and crisis response Kristalina Georgieva said: “I want to send my sincere condolences to the families and loved ones of those who have perished as a result of these terrible floods.
“In less than a day and a half, 14 of our member states - half the EU – have responded to calls for assistance from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, mobilising helicopters, boats, pumping modules and expert teams. This is an admirable display of European solidarity and we will keep supporting our neighbours for as long as they need our help.”
The UK has sent 33 firefighters to the region to help with the rescue operation, along with four boats.
