BELGRADE, May 18 /ITAR-TASS/. More than 24,300 people have already been evacuated in flood-stricken Serbia so far, head of the sector for emergency situations at the Serbian Interior Ministry Predrag Maric said at a meeting of the republican emergency response headquarters on Sunday.
In his words, death of five people, including a rescuer, was officially confirmed. One more person is reported missing. The final number of fatalities is expected to be much larger, but it will be found only after the water flows away from inundated districts.
