SERBIA / BULGARIA / ROMANIA / CZECH REP/ BOSNIA / HUNGARY : Danube Is Drying Up...During Worst Drought In Decades.
The worst winter drought in decades is underway in the Balkans.
River levels are at record lows.
About 80 cargo ships in the Danube are stranded at the Serbia-Hungary border.
The lack of water is affecting Serbia's power supplies and making drinking water scarce in Bosnia.
The Czech Republic is at its driest since records began in 1775.
"The Bosna river is so low, you can walk from one bank to another," said a fisherman. "People catch fish with bare hands--and not only any fish--but 20-kilo/44-pound catfish."
