The weather in Slovakia has gone wild and caused significant damage across the country – power cutoffs, traffic problems and flooding.
A map of Slovakia turned yellow, orange, and red after the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) issued numerous weather warnings against strong winds on February 4.
SHMÚ predicted 115km/h winds would hit the Bratislava Region in the afternoon hours, while 180km/h winds were expected in the Tatras and Lower Tatras. The SHMÚ also warned against rainfall and flooding in several districts in the Žilina, Banská Bystrica, and Trenčín Regions.
Meteorologists also expected snowfall in the Tatra Mountains, as well as in historical regions of Kysuce, Horehronie and Orava, which are located in the north of Slovakia.
