An F4 category tornado causes devastating losses in southern Moravia, Czech Republic

On 24.06.2021 an F4 strength tornado (characterised by a wind strength of >333 km/h and devastating damage) swiped trough southern Moravia in the Czech Republic. An unprecedented event for this region.

The tornado left behind a 26 km long and up to 0.7 km wide corridor of devastation, levelling buildings and extensively damaging the infrastructure and vegetation. Approximately 200 people were injured and 6 lost their life. Besides the immediate damages the destruction of infrastructure also resulted in regional power outages and complicated the access of emergency services.
