Four dead, numerous injured and damages up to millions. That’s the trial balance after the weekend from 01.03.2008 to 02.03.2008. The cleanup efforts have started all over the whole country.

Windstorm “Emma” went through Austria with a speed of approximately 150 km/h and left a trace of destruction. A sad balance of four dead in Austria, loss of power, closed roads, broken trees and chaos. The degree of damage can’t be estimated exactly at the moment. In Upper Austria and Lower Austria we assume damages up to 100 millions of Euros.
