Heavy storm disrupts transportation
A powerful lightening storm Tuesday evening complicated transportation and flooded cellars around the country, particularly in the southwest. Strong winds of up to 100 km/h toppled trees and posed a particular problem for the railway system. Three railways tracks remained closed on Wednesday as maintenance crews worked to clear the debris. Parts of the Czech Republic saw heat records of 30.5 degrees Celsius on Tuesday prior to the storm, which brought a cold front in its wake with temperatures of 13-15 degrees.
