The local news site 057 reports that parts of the coastal city of Zadar in Croatia are under water, after heavy rain fell in the space of only two hours on Monday morning – the worst single rainfall since 1986, meteorologists said.

Many roads are flooded and whole neighbourhoods are without electricity. Some schools have suspended classes. As rain continues to fall, the city authorities have urged residents not to drive until they receive further notice.
