The hurricane destroys Czech villages

A hurricane with a hurricane on Thursday in the southeastern part of the Czech Republic killed and caused numerous injuries. The rescue service could not say how many people died. About 200 injuries were reported at Hodon’s hospital. In many villages, roofs were closed, window panes were destroyed, trees were uprooted and cars were thrown around, according to a TV station CD.
Health Minister Adam Vojtech said on television that the situation there was like a war. According to the CD, several buses capsized in a storm in southern Moravia near the Austrian border. Interior Minister John Hamasek said all available forces were going to the area. “Everything in the arms and legs goes there.”
A big fan is seen in pictures and videos on social media. The meteorological service CHMU confirmed that it was a hurricane. The communities of Hrusky with a population of about 1500 and the Moravskaya Nova Wes with a population of about 2600 are particularly affected. Deputy Mayor Hruskis told the CDK agency that half the space had been demolished. “There are only walls without roofs and windows,” he said. People could not have saved themselves from the storm.
Hail the size of tennis balls
Several rescue teams with dogs go to the deployment area to search for lessons buried in the buildings. The fire brigade went from house to house. “There’s a lot of chaos here, a lot of panic,” a witness told the CD station in Lucius Municipality. Many houses are said to be in danger of collapsing. Police blocked access roads to several places to keep spectators away.
Heavy summer thunderstorms passed through southern Moravia, making it known for its wine-growing areas, throughout the evening. Emergency lines carried the load. According to witnesses on social media, the size of tennis balls in the districts of Breklaw and Hodon fell. Fort Walthis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was damaged by millions of people. Numerous windows in the Baroque building have been broken since the 17th century. The T2 motorway goes from Brno to Brecklaw because the high voltage line fell on the roadway. About 32,000 homes were without electricity.
The government in Prague has put the army forces on standby for a relief operation. Austria sent 20 ambulances and two rescue helicopters, while neighboring Slovakia also sent aid. Czech Prime Minister Andrzej Babis has announced that he will not return by air from Brussels due to the weather in Europe, where he will attend the EU summit.
