Roofs covered – severe storms also in Styria


The severe storms that have been sweeping Austria since Tuesday have also left their mark in Styria. The Murau district is particularly affected. And unfortunately, not everything is clear in sight.

The storms in Styria are mainly concentrated in the west of Upper Styria: especially in the valleys of the Mur and Ennstal, many fire brigades have been in continuous operation since Tuesday afternoon. “On Tuesday the rain was less of a problem than the high winds,” said Walter Horn of the Murau fire brigade.

The center was located in the Kraków Municipality. Houses were damaged by the storm and the roof of one house was even partially removed. Rows of trees have fallen in the municipal area of ​​the district capital of Murau. A total of ten fire brigades were deployed in the Murau district alone. Several cellars had to be pumped out, sandbags were laid and debris flows cleared.

“At the moment there is a threat of flooding due to the heavy rainfall, especially in the Stadl area,” Horn fears badly in the coming hours. There have also been several mudslides in this region. The Central Institute of Meteorology and Geodynamics announced a strong thunderstorm hazard in the Murtal on Wednesday – according to ZAMG, however, heavy rain and thunderstorms could fall in almost all of Styria in almost all of Styria, according to ZAMG, according to ZAMG. Initially, only the area east of Graz is preferred – but thunderstorms are also possible here in the afternoon.
