Snow calamity will cost tens of millions of crowns

Last week’s heavy snowfall in northern Moravia which brought down power lines and left thousands of people without light and heating across the region is estimated to have cost tens of millions of crowns in damages, the CTK news agency reported on Tuesday. The snow calamity has now been called off but in some areas maintenance workers are still clearing away fallen trees and electricity supplier ČEZ has yet to restore power to several hundred homes.
