One person killed in Croatia storm

Zagreb, 11 November 2013 (MIA) - One person died and three were seriously injured in Croatia after gale-force winds and rain blew down trees and roofs in the capital Zagreb and along the Adriatic coast, local media reported.

Cyclone Teodor, named by Crometeo, a Split-based meteorological institute, was created by bad weather in northern Europe and formed overnight as a secondary storm over the northern Adriatic, Crometeo said on its website.

The storm brought damaging waves and high winds, reaching 200 kilometers per hour along the Adriatic coast and causing traffic suspensions on land and sea. A 46-year-old man was killed by a falling tree in Novi Marof, north of the capital, while hundreds of trees were ripped out in Zagreb, Croatian Radio said.

In neighboring Slovenia, high winds in the Alps and along the coast blew off roofs and damaged cars, while rivers Krka and Ljubljanica swelled with heavy rains, according to local weather forecasts. lk/15:43
