Heavy rainfall causes flooding and raging torrents in Zadar area, including Nin where the torrent has destroyed a part of the bridge.

Heavy rain that has flooded much of Zadar has also caused huge problems in other nearby towns, reports 24sata on September 11, 2017.

In Nin, a pedestrian bridge that connects the old town [located on a small island] with the mainland has been destroyed, right around the middle part, by a raging torrent. Bridge for vehicular traffic has also been submerged, making it impassable. The severe flood also destroyed the salt pans and the nearby playground.

Pedestrians stood at the beginning of the bridge shaking their heads in disbelief and wondering how to get to the other side. “Everyone on the island is currently trapped here,” said the reader.

The road to Ražanca has also been damaged, closing all traffic to Pag island. Due to flood in the area of Zadar traffic is also suspended on the DC8 Adriatic road at Sukošan, on the ŽC6007 Zadar-Ražanac regional road between Poljica and Mazi, ŽC6040 Sukošan-Sveti Martin-Zemunik and ŽC6004 Nin-Vrsi.
