Firefighters have been busy this morning in the capital Zagreb dealing with damage caused by the 60 km/h winds, as trees and rooftops have been literally blown away, whilst on the Adriatic coast, bura winds of up to 200km/h have been reported. Snow has also been reported on Sljeme in Zagreb, and also in Zavižan, Ogulin,Parg and in areas around the Gorski Kotar region.

The strong bura winds on the coast have forced the closure of part of the A1 motorway and the Adriatic highway, whilst the ferry lines: Brestova-Porozina, Valbiska- Lopar, Prizna- Žigljen and Stinica- Mišnjak, and catamaran connections; Novalja-Rab-Rijeka, Ubli-Vela Luka-Hvar-Split and Korčula-Hvar-Split have all been cancelled.
