After 8 pm last night, Herceg Novi was hit by heavy thunderstorms, winds, and rain, and the substantial amount of precipitation could not be accepted by utility holes, canals, streams in that short time.

As the commander of the Protection and Rescue Service Zlatko Ćirović told the portal Radio Jadran, the critical zone is the roundabout in Meljine, where the stream Nemilo flooded, and threatens to endanger the main road and surrounding structures.

"I urge that everyone who does not have an urgent need to go to this road avoid the roundabout, because a traffic jam is created and the vehicles are interfering with the interventions of our services," said Ćirović.

The ground floors of houses and commercial buildings have flooded, and the main road is exposed to torrential waters in many places.

Several calls were received by the security service to pump water from the facilities, but they did not intervene because the level is below 20 centimeters, which is the minimum required for their pumps to operate, Radio Jadran reports.

According to Igalo Weather Station, from 7 to 9 am, 50 liters of rain per square meter fell in that part of the Municipality.
