EXTREME WEATHER - Mini tornado rips through the centre of Dubrovnik crashing chairs and tables in its path

By  Sep 11, 2017

Extreme weather conditions in Dubrovnik caught everyone by surprise this afternoon as strong gale force southerly winds blasted the city. Trees were uprooted, trailers blown over on the Dubrovnik Bridge and traffic across the whole city came to a virtual standstill.

And one of the biggest weather surprises was a “small” tornado crashing through the historic Old City of Dubrovnik. This mini tornado threw chairs and tables in a popular cafe bar on the Stradun to the ground and even brought down massive sun umbrellas.

Thankfully there are no reports on any injuries in the extreme weather. Locals and tourists ran out of the way of windswept chairs as the storm continued. The traffic throughout the city is still extremely slow with jams at all the major junctions.

Heavy rain and storms are forecast for tonight with the weather forecasters issuing an alert of “extreme weather conditions expected.”
