Strong Bora Wind -Risk Factor in Traffic
AbstractThis paper presents a survey of strong bora wind. Bora windof extreme severity, which may blow along the entire Adriaticcoast, usually causes a lot of damage to the electrical power networkand a complete road and sea traffic disruption. Therefore,there is a growing need for introducing the bora risk factor intraffic planning.
