Zadar was hit with heavy rainfall on Tuesday, leading to widespread flooding throughout the city. Meteorologist Anita Vidović reported that an incredible 50 liters of rain per square meter fell in just one hour, which is typically the amount of precipitation seen over the course of a month at this time of year.
The torrential downpour caused many parts of the city to flood, stranding cars on roads and requiring a dozen interventions by firefighters to address flooded basements and ground floors of buildings. County fire chief Matej Rudić confirmed that the fire department received numerous calls for assistance, including drivers who were stranded in the water.
Despite the extreme weather conditions, there were no reports of serious traffic accidents from the Zadar Police Department. The situation in Croatia as the storm continues can be monitored minute by minute.
