Heavy storm in Prague

After the hot day it came hard rain. Yesterday evening brought strong rain to Prague and caused damage at some places.

Some cellars was floated and under-crossings in Prague has a same problem. The under-crossing in Chlumecka street became a large pond where a driver stuck with his delivery truck. Two trams with passengers stuck in Tesnov tunnel in high water. Some streets had a new lakes.

There was also a problem in metro station Mustek because the water fall so fast (as at many places) that it reach escalators and they was stopped because of electricity. Despite of this the most damage was caused by fallen trees. They damaged some cars and buildings.

And some rarity: A man near Sokolov town went away from water and was hit by a lightning and he survived! He is now in a hospital with some problems, but he is conscious.
