Gale force winds rip up trees and flip over a caravan in Dubrovnik

By  Oct 07, 2017

It is safe to say that the summer is over in Dubrovnik. Gale force winds and heavy rains hit the Dubrovnik region last night causing havoc throughout the city.

The Dubrovnik Fire Brigade were called out to eleven different interventions mainly involving trees that had been ripped up by the winds and brought down on cars and other vehicles.

On the Dubrovnik Bridge high winds caused a caravan to be flipped on its side and the bridge was closed for a short time whilst the caravan was removed. The poor weather is forecast to continue to at least Tuesday and then stable and warmer conditions will return.
