Storm overturned trees – hundreds of operations in Lower Austria: severe storms raged


The storm also left its mark in Lower Austria and many roads – including the Krems highway – were blocked. The storm may have been particularly severe in the Horn district, where about 100 operations were recorded. But the Franz-Josefs-Bahn was also partly scrapped. The cleanup continued on Thursday evening.

Covered roof trusses, many trees blocking roads and cars, some literally locked up – more than 200 operations were registered at the state warning center on Thursday night over the tragic accident of three hikers in Langau near Gaming in the Scheibbs district.

Krems highway blocked
Around 6 p.m. gusts of wind knocked down about three trees near the Danube Bridge, blocking both lanes of the Krems highway towards St. Pölten and one lane towards Krems. The clean-up work continues, in the evening it was estimated that it would last until later in the night.

Hoorn district particularly affected
According to the first information, the Horn district was particularly hard hit: there were about 100 operations alone, almost 30 in the district town itself. behind.

Rail replacement service on the Franz-Josefs-Bahn
In Sigmundsherberg, the passengers of the Franz-Josefs-Bahn had to transfer to a track replacement service – damage to the overhead wires in the northern Waldviertel would be responsible.
