High tides almost flood roads in Dubrovnik Ahmet Kalajdžić

High tides almost flood roads in Dubrovnik

By  Nov 06, 2019

Even though the tides in the Adriatic are relatively small during these autumn days they can be higher than normal, and that was the case yesterday in Dubrovnik.

The sea almost spilled over onto the roads along the Bay of Lapad yesterday as the strong south winds brought not only wet and grey weather bit also high tides. These same tides are traditionally a problem for Venice where they have introduced a number of measures to stop flooding.

So far the water level isn’t over the roads, but with more wet and rainy weather to come this week it might be time to break out the wellies if you live on the seafront.
