BRATISLAVA. A cold front with winds reaching 120 kilometres per hour hit western Slovakia on the night of September 14-15. Some regions announced a second level warning.
The strong winds claimed at least one life when a wall of bricks fell on a man near Hul village in the Nové Zámky region. Firefighters succeeded in pulling the person from the debris but his injuries were too serious.
Also some power lines and wiring fell down. The state-run passenger carrier ZSSK stopped trains going between Šajdikové Humence - Šaštín Stráže and Šaľa - Trnovec nad Váhom.
