On Tuesday, heavy rainfall hit Zadar, resulting in widespread flooding throughout the city. Meteorologist Anita Vidović reported that an unprecedented 50 liters of rain per square meter fell in just one hour, a level of precipitation that is typically seen over the course of a month at this time of year.
The downpour caused many parts of the city to become flooded, leading to stranded cars on the roads and several interventions by firefighters to address flooded basements and ground floors of buildings. County fire chief Matej Rudić confirmed that his department had received numerous calls for assistance, including drivers who were stranded in the water.
Despite the extreme weather conditions, there were no reports of serious traffic accidents from the Zadar Police Department. The situation in Croatia as the storm unfolds can be monitored minute by minute.
