Coastal storm damages Montenegro hospital, other buildings

June 9, 2018

PODGORICA, Montenegro (AP) — Authorities in Montenegro say a powerful storm has damaged dozens of houses and a hospital along the country’s Adriatic Sea coast.

The storm that engulfed the Boka Kotorska bay area early on Saturday swept away part of the hospital’s roof and blew out many of its windows.

Officials say about 50 houses and buildings have been damaged in all. The heavy wind also turned over cars, brought down trees and damaged two small planes at a local airport. Some parts of the area were temporarily left without electricity.

To the north in Slovenia, Prime Minister Miro Cerar on Saturday toured a southeastern region where apple-sized hail damaged roofs, crops and cars late Friday. Storms also hit Croatia and Bosnia.
