The nursery in Moravia hit by a tornado is already open

Earlier this year on June 24, shortly after seven o'clock in the evening, an extreme storm with hail and a tornado swept over the region of the Břeclav and Hodonín. According to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute, it was a very strong tornado accompanied by whirlwinds which reached level four on Fujita Scale (which is the second highest tornado intensity). It swept through Moravia, an area which is about 26 kilometers long and half a kilometer wide, leaving hell in its wake.

Mikulčice, Hrušky, Lužice, Pánov, Bažantnice and Moravská Nová Ves suffered the most damage. A local kindergarten in Moravská Nová Ves was also hit. It required financial aid for a substantial reconstruction.

For this reason, we at Penta Real Estate decided to donate almost 4 million Czech crowns to the area affected by the tornado. Our employees visited the community and assessed the extent of the damage to ensure that the money would cover all the necessary expenses for the restoration of the facade, roof and windows. Of course, we were not the only ones to help. Immediately after the tornado had hit, a huge wave of solidarity emerged with volunteers who came to help and even organized a fundraiser.

The reconstruction of the kindergarten was completed in time before the arrival of children which we are especially excited about. We believe that our help as well as the help of volunteers, companies and other organizations aided the affected communities in Moravia to quickly address the damage caused by the tornado. It is the difficult times like the ones the Moravians have endured this summer, which show that collective help and solidarity truly are most important.
