The situation is constantly changing, with new areas being flooded as a result of new rainfall, rising rivers and groundwater. Keep an eye on the situation and follow news broadcasts, and get yourself to safety if you are in danger. Do not set off unless absolutely necessary.

Leave home only if absolutely necessary

Leave home only if it is absolutely necessary. Before you set off, check the road conditions at the Traffic Information Centre and follow media reports. You can also find information on the website of the Slovenian Protection and Rescue Administration – Spin SOS.

Observe road closures and instructions of emergency services

Please observe road closures and do not attempt to drive on or cross flooded roads, as this can be deadly!

Make sure you are safe, property should come second!

Make sure your life and the lives of those around you are safe. Do not rescue property if doing so would put your life in danger! Property is always replaceable, life is not!

Police officers help rescue people

In addition to police duties, police officers are helping to evacuate people. The Air Support Unit crews, together mountain rescue teams, are on their way to help people in the worst-affected areas, where they are assisting their colleagues from the Civil Protection and other intervention services.

If you need help, call 112 or 113

If your life is in danger, call the emergency number 112 or the police emergency number 113 immediately. Please note that both numbers are extremely busy due to the high number of calls, and all available forces are already on the ground, so use them sensibly so that help can reach those most at risk first.
