Yesterday, April 15, squalls toppled over 60 trees in Uzhgorod - mostly in city gardens and parks, surrounding areas and main streets. The bad weather left 20 streets without electricity. In most of the houses electricity have been restored.

Fallen trees damaged 4 cars - on Kotsyubynsky, Zahorska, Belinsky and Sobranetska streets. The storm damaged the pipeline, which supplied gas to two houses - № 35 and № 37 on Sobranetska street. Employees of the "Zakarpathaz" JSC restored gas supply.

According to the deputy mayor Vitaliy Semal, today the utilities continue to remove sawn trees and branches. And the staff of the Department of Municipal Economy of Uzhgorod City Council examine the city to identify dangerous trees.
