Three ships aground as storm wreaks havoc along Dalmatian coast

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

The ships have been identified as  Krka, Orebi? and Vranjic and are owned by Split-based shipping company.

Unconfirmed information said 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 harbour, 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.

The salvage operation was scheduled for Saturday morning.
