Crazy thunderstorms accompanied by unusually strong hailstorms swept the Czech Republic in 2023, it lasted for 48 hours and showed no sign of stopping.
Meteorologists say a hail attack will continue over the next few days.
It looks like snow, but it’s hail…
Severe thunderstorms accompanied by strong hail and gusty winds crippled central Bohemia and the Highlands on February 16, 2023, leading to ice flooding, inaccessible villages and destroy cars.
Weather complicated the traffic at the airport Vaclav Havel, where aircrafts could not land.
In some places hail formed a continuous layer of several centimeters. In some villages, snow plows were even used to take away the snow… Sorry hail.
The hailstones aren’t so large – 4 centimeters in diameter – but fell with high intensity covering large areas within few minutes with up to ten centimeters of hail.
