Most of Croatia has been stormy recently, and footage from Slavonia has showcased just how damaging it has been.
The weather in Croatia as a whole has been turbulent over the last few weeks, more precisely since May. The month of May was dominated by rain and poor weather conditions, and while we were given a few rays of hope (literally) recently, the weather seems to have taken a turn for the worse once again with grey skies, storms and incredible wind harrassing parts of the country.
As Vecernji list writes on the 9th of July, 2019, in Davor, Brodsko-Posavska County in continental Croatia, more precisely in Slavonia, some truly impressive video footage of the strong wind carrying away everything in front of it was captured.
Heavy storms struck most of Croatia on Sunday evening, with the continental part of the country taking the worst battering. The footage released on Facebook, taken in Davor in Slavonia, shows just how much power the wind had as it destroyed everything in its path.
As stated, this dramatic home video footage was taken in the Davor Municipality in Brodsko-Posavska County, in southern Slavonia, where ”What is this?!” (Što je ovo) and ”Look at this!” (Vidi ovo) can be heard in the background of the video footage from astonished locals who are clearly taken aback by the sheer strength of the force of the wild wind.
Yesterday, MUP reported that the wind had caused damage and seen some roofs of houses collapse, as well as those of some local commercial buildings in Davor, and several trees had unfortunately fallen victim to the wind, falling down.
In Slavonski Brod, several 112 emergency calls reported the falling of trees, and in the wider area of the county (Davor, Okučani, Stara Gradiška, Bebrina and Slavonski Brod) there has been discontinued electricity supplies due to the wind that has broken electric poles.
