On Thursday, October 21, about 300 thousand households were temporarily left without power supply in the Czech Republic due to a severe hurricane, Evropeyska Pravda reports.
A number of regions of the country suffered from powerful gusts of wind. Firefighters made about 3500 visits in the evening, helping to eliminate the consequences of bad weather.
At 7:00 am on October 22, about 8400 consumers were still de-energized, a spokeswoman for the energy company ČEZ said.
“Where we managed to repair all the damage to the high-voltage lines, we are working intensively to resume transmission at the low-voltage level. Hundreds of repair teams are working on the spot,” the press secretary said.
