Prague’s Žižkov TV tower damaged by lightning strike

A lightning strike which occurred during a storm on Monday afternoon has damaged the warning lights for aircraft on Prague’s Žižkov TV tower, Czech Television reports, citing the Czech Radiocommunications company (České Radiokomunikace). The damage meant that the lights could not be switched from the standard day to night regime and were therefore flashing with greater intensity than usual during the night from Monday to Tuesday.

Czech Radiocommunications says it expects the issue will be repaired by the end of Tuesday.
