Flood Danger Not Over

Croatia83Parts of Croatia are still in danger from floods which ravaged the region on the weekend…

After the central town of Karlovac was evacuated on Saturday, and a state of emergency declared in a number of areas, parts of the Koprivnica-Križevci county, Medjimurje and Sisak are bracing themselves today for a wave of water which could pose potential danger to homes. It is all hands on deck as locals build sandbag barriers as they prepare to defend their homes against flood waters. Flooding has caused a number of roads around the country to close on Tuesday. The next 2-3 days are critical with river levels expected to rise another 20cm today.

Croatia1Prime Minister Zoran Milanović will survey flooded scenes this afternoon by helicopter as the Red Cross collected donations to help provided those in need with basic necessities. Persistent rain over the last 10 days has left a big part of the country underwater, and many descirbe the floods as the worst which they can remember over the last 60 years.
