20 trees blocked the road!

This happened on a stretch of about one kilometer. “Now it is not in the power of the foresters and the road administration to clear it, so it will be closed until Monday,” said police spokeswoman Michaela Richterová yesterday. Firefighters also went to Benešovsko, Příbramsko and the D4 highway.

Prague’s Václav Havel Airport was also plagued by storms. “Flight check-in was suspended shortly before 1:15 p.m. and lasted about half an hour,” airport spokeswoman Eva Krejčí said, adding that only the flight from London to Prague was significantly affected. The plane was diverted to Dresden.

The fire broke out in difficult-to-reach terrain.

The fire broke out at Pravčická brána

Flames broke out yesterday morning in the forest near Hřensko near Pravčická brány. 26 units of firefighters fought them. It is not yet known why the fire started. “The human factor is likely,” thinks Tomáš Salov, spokesman for the Czech Switzerland National Park Administration. In the early evening, the firefighters had to call in the army and evacuate the tourists from the gorges due to a new outbreak.
