06-01-2008

Over 8,000 people in the town of Litvínov were left without heating and hot water for most of the weekend due to a damaged hot water pipe in the town’s central heating system. United Energy, the company which operates the facility, concluded emergency repairs and restored heating to thousands of households in the late afternoon on Sunday. Day temperatures in Litvínov hovered at around minus four degrees Celsius and people used electric appliances to heat their homes as best as they could.
