Heavy Rain Causes Trouble Across Slovenia

By: P.T., STA

Record rains that pummelled the capital Ljubljana and eastern Slovenia on Wednesday night caused extensive flooding, with basements flooded in hundreds of residential, industrial and educational buildings.

In just one hour one weather station in Ljubljana recorded 94 millimetres of rain, the highest ever recorded in the capital and in what the Environment Agency has described on Twitter as a “once in two centuries event”.

Goričko in the east received a similar amount of rainfall.

The Ljubljana emergency call centre alone received over 2,700 calls for assistance and flooding was reported in over 500 buildings around the city.

Several schools were flooded, as was the SNG Drama theatre in the centre of the city and multiple industrial buildings.

In eastern Slovenia buildings were flooded in Beltinci, Cankova, Lendava, Celje, Laško, Ljutomer, Murska Sobota, Odranci, Puconci and Rogašovci.

There have been no report of casualties.
