Between 19 and 22 July, Serbia was hit by several storms accompanied by heavy downpours, stormy gusts of wind, at times of hurricane force, as well as large hail of sizes from two to five, at some points even over five centimetres in diameter.
The storm caused extensive damage to family houses, and this regulation provides non-refundable financial aid for repairing the damage to about 11,000 family houses owned by citizens, as determined so far based on the reports of local self-government units.
Government members also adopted the Regulation on determining the state programme for assistance and reconstruction of destroyed family houses owned by citizens due to the effects of strong stormy wind, hail and rain in July 2023, and it also set aside funds for repairing the damage to ten destroyed family houses owned by citizens.
A Conclusion was adopted on the consent to engage the Ministry of Defence, the Serbian Armed Forces and the Ministry of the Interior on providing assistance to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management in the implementation of ordered measures on the prevention of the spread of the infectious disease African swine fever, its control and eradication.
By 3 August, the existence of the infection was confirmed in more than 1,600 farms in a total of 38 municipalities, that is, 13 administrative districts in Serbia.
