Heavy overnight rainfall has caused rivers in the Sarajevo area to rise and flood homes in the suburbs for the fifth time in the past 20 months.

The city's Civil Protection department said Monday that about 100 homes were underwater. Rescuers evacuated an elderly woman but are complaining that many residents are refusing evacuation.

Bosnians have still not recovered from the devastating floods in May, the worst in 120 years. The flooding displaced 90,000 people from their homes and left 43,000 homes in need of repair. The water wrecked the agriculture industry, infrastructure, farms, buildings and homes in 40 percent of Bosnia.

Rain is expected to continue to fall for the rest of the week.
