Light damage is reported from throughout Macedonia after yesterday’s storm. Uprooted trees, strewn garbage, tiles and in some places even entire roofs were seen flying off as winds reached between 80 and 100 kilometers per hour.

No injuries are reported so far. Temperatures dropped significantly and what was a balmy, springtime weather turned into proper winter.

The Mavrovo ski resort had 33 centimeters of snow, while Debar and Bitola had 22. Lower parts of the country still have rainfalls. Daily highs for today are predicted to reach 8 degrees and the lows are around 0.
