Record Rain Falls in Dubrovnik

CroatiaTourists and locals were scattering for cover and keeping dry in cafes as the popular southern Dalmatian city of Dubrovnik recorded record rain falls on Monday…

The whole of Croatia was feeling the effects of cyclone Simeon overnight, with rain up and down the country. One of the worst places effected was Dubrovnik, where a record 128 litres per square metre fell in just 24 hours. The amount of rain that fell on the first day of September, was more than the September average. Meanwhile, services were stretched across other parts of the country also with the Zagreb fire department attending over 100 call-outs due to incidents resulting from floods and wind damage around the city.

The strong winds on the coast also played havoc with boaters and kayakers. A group of seven kayakers had to get rescued just off the coast of Vis after getting into trouble on Monday, whilst strong winds damaged a number of yachts along the coast. Weather is expected to improve for tourists on Wednesday.
