Slovak farmers are waiting to see the effects of the sudden drop in temperatures across Slovakia. After weeks of spring weather, frost, snow, and blizzards have affected the whole country.
Most of the damage is expected to be to fruit trees. "Apricot, peach, plum, and cherry blossoms may be frozen," explained Stanislav Nemec, spokesperson for the Agriculture and Produce Association.
The farmers will have to wait for warmer weather to assess the full damage.
