Big floods in Zagreb

 A big storm that hit the Croatian capital of Zagreb on Friday night has left the city underwater and in chaos.
 Torrential heavy rain, as well as strong winds, lightning and thunder started at around 9 p.m. and left a good part of the city flooded. The Zagreb Emergency Management Office reported that the Fire Brigade had already carried out over 80 interventions by midnight and had received over 1,000 emergency calls from the public. Most interventions are technical interventions to pump water out of roads and from basements and authorities asked citizens to be patient as they could not cope with the volume of work.
