  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Rare tornado in Czech Republic kills three in trail of destruction” – below is their description.

    A rare tornado and strong storms struck along the Czech Republic’s southern border on Thursday to destroy parts of some towns, killing at least three people and injuring dozens more, emergency services and media said.

    The tornado, reported in towns around Hodonin, along the Slovak and Austrian borders and 270 km (167 miles) southeast of Prague, the capital, may have reached windspeeds above 332 kph (206 mph), a Czech Television meteorologist said.

    That would make it the strongest in the modern history of the central European nation and its first tornado since 2018.

    Strong storms ripped roofs off houses and other buildings, blew out windows, overturned cars and scattered debris through the streets.
