The Dalmatian City of Split and the nearby town of Makarska are under water after heavy rain accompanied by thunderstorms last night and this morning caused havoc after flooding streets and waterfronts.
Heavy storms clogged manholes as floods spread from the Makarska waterfront to surrounding suburbs in the area, reported Dalmacija News.
More than 50 members of the local fire brigade worked to pump water from buildings after 48 litres of rain per square meter fell in just 30 minutes.
