Fire fighters finish work in tornado-hit villages in Moravia

Fire fighters have completed their work in villages in south Moravia that were devastated by a tornado last month. The news was announced on Thursday by the governor of the region, Jan Grolich. Police officers and soldiers are continuing to work in the municipalities, which saw extensive damage.

Mr. Grolich said that food supplies should be working by the start of August, when homes should also have gas and electricity once again. Currently locals are getting by on alternative power sources.
