Three Ships Aground as Storm Wreaks Havoc along Dalmatian Coast

Three cargo ships ran aground off Dalmatian coast, Croatia this afternoon as violent storm rages throughout the region.  

The ships have been identified as  Krka, Orebić and Vranjic and are owned by Split-based shipping company. Unconfirmed information says that the third ship got beached in a nearby area called Slatine. There were no injuries reported as the ships had no crew on board.

The ships had been berthed at the harbor, however; strong winds snapped the ropes holding the ships in place setting them adrift.

Two tugs have been rushed to the scene and one coast guard vessel. Nevertheless, there is nothing that can be done at the moment due to the weather, local media report.

The salvage operation is scheduled for Saturday morning.
