The cabinet also confirmed the final assessment of direct damage to property caused by storms and floods between 28 and 30 August last year in the Notranjska region and the coast, which stands at EUR 5.56 million.

In both cases the damage exceeds the threshold for state aid, so the relevant procedures for distributing the aid and mending the damage will be launched, the Government Communication Office said.
