Emergency services, energy providers and fire fighters are dealing with the damage caused by the wind storm Sabine which hit the Czech Republic in the early hours of Monday, with a force of 180 kilometres per hour in the mountain regions. Over 120 thousand households were left without power and energy providers have called a state of emergency in four regions. Fallen trees complicated rail and road traffic in many parts of the country and Prague’s international airport cancelled a number of flights. The storm is expected to subside in the course of the day.
