ZAGREB, 9 Aug (Hina) – Following thunderstorms that hit Zagreb on 19 and 21 July, residents of the Croatian capital submitted 6,285 reports of damage caused to their houses, cars and farmland via a web application designed for that purpose.
The deadline for the submission of reports expired on 7 August, and so far the competent teams have processed 4,110 or 63% of the reports, and they will continue doing so until the end of August, the city authorities said on Wednesday.
Based on their findings, an expert task force will be formed to determine the scope of the damage and make a financial estimate of it.
Based on those data, the city authorities will propose a budget revision to the Zagreb City Assembly in September to secure funds for financial assistance to citizens.
The reports of damage include 120 reports of damage caused to farmland, and so far 96 or 80% of those reports have been processed.
