The Government agreed on March 12 to an Interior Ministry proposal to allocate close to Sk700,000 (€21,700) to municipalities that were hit by severe gales and snowstorms last year, the TASR wrote.

The funds, which come in response to requests from the regional governments in Prešov and Trenčín to reimburse the cost of clean-up operations, will be released within 15 days from the Government reserves for natural disasters and their prevention. The towns of Vysoké Tatry and Starý Smokovec in the High Tatras were hit by gale-force winds gusting up to 100 km/h last January 11. The winds tore off roofs of community buildings and other facilities, while fallen trees blocked roads and footpaths.

The villages of Motešice and Valaská Belá in the Trenčín Region were battered by a freak storm on June 21 that destroyed electricity lines and damaged roofs of houses and office blocks, leaving hardly any property untouched. Toppled trees blocked the Trenčianske Teplice-Krásna Ves-Neporádza road. TASR
