Heavy rain and hurricane force winds have created problems on Croatian roads, closing a number of sections on motorways, as well as forcing the cancellation of most ferry connections to the islands. The worst areas hit by yesterdays severe weather was the Osijek and Baranja region in eastern Croatia where a state of natural disaster was declared. Homes and agricultural land was flooded yesterday as rain drilled down constantly for close to 24 hours.
