On Saturday, 6th of August, a terrible and rather unexpected storm hit Skopje. Whereas the city center and the most urban areas remained without any significant damage, wider streets, under-bridge passages and especially the Skopje ring-road and the surrounding villages suffered a tremendous damage. Their houses were under water, cars were destroyed, many animals died and the crops were all destroyed from the sudden flood of water. What is worse, 21 people died and there is still a search for missing persons.
