Yesterday’s extreme Bora wind event is still resonating across the northern Adriatic region. Preliminary reports suggest the winds gusted above 200 km/h over a wide area of Kvarner, Croatia. Other areas, including Istria, the coast of Slovenia and the northeastern Italian coast also experienced very strong winds, although not as strong as in Kvarner. Amateur meteorologists and weather enthusiasts caught impressive video and photos of the event.

Severe Weather Europe already reported on this severe event here, here and here.
