The flood waters have flowed through these breaches and completely submerged the agricultural lands North of the peninsula, South of the peninsula and partially flooded the North of Obrenovac. A part of the city situated at higher elevation has not been directly affected. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field.
