The Slovak government re-opened its Wednesday sessions on August 10 after a three-week summer recess. One of the issues debated was the approval of €404,000 from public coffers for Slovak municipalities hit by windstorms, torrential rains or whirlwinds in 2009-2010.

The biggest amount (€160,839) will go to the village of Chmiňany (Prešov district), where in April 2009 five new houses were buried after torrential rain caused a landslide, the SITA newswire wrote. The second biggest sum will go to Záborské (also in Prešov district) where on May 18, 2010, a landslide covered a football playing field; the third municipality is Rudník (Myjava district) with €38,582. Altogether, €342,000 will go to Prešov district, followed by Nové Mesto nad Váhom (€49,000), Spišská Nová Ves (€1,500), Poprad (€4,300), Zvolen (€2,500) and Svidník (€4,400). Other municipalities stricken by natural disasters include Brezovička, Dubovica, Pečovská Nová Ves, Petrovany, Žipov, Kapušany, Fričovce, Chminianska Nová Ves, Oľšavka, Iliašovce, and the town of Levoča, the TASR newswire wrote. The money should arrive in the respective districts’ accounts within 20 days and then be re-directed to municipalities.
