The homes of tens of thousands of people are under water after massive flooding in Serbia. Government ineptitude has left people to fend for themselves in many cases, but luckily citizen initiatives to deliver aid and help inform the public are multiplying. Meanwhile, social networks, the media, and even public personas find themselves threatened by authorities for “inciting panic” at a time when access to more quality information is sorely needed. What's going on?

On GV Face this week, we talk to friends in Serbia, including our Central and Eastern Europe Editor Danica Radisic to get a local perspective on the news.
