Parts of Prague are without heat and hot water

“The cause is a leak in the pipeline. The pipe burst, and it was necessary to shut down those areas that are currently without supplies,” said Pavel Maďar, head of the heat sales department, said repairs were underway. The company supplies heat to about 230,000 households.

According to the company’s dispatching center, this is a partial breakdown that affects the areas of Jižní Město, Košík, Chodov, Opatov, Modřany, Kamýk, Novodvorská, Háje, Lhotka, the Krč housing estate, as well as Vinohradská, Ruská, Vršovická, and Bohdalce streets.

Heat for Prague is produced at the Mělník power plant, operated by ČEZ. “The heat pipeline from Mělník is in order,” said ČEZ spokesman Ladislav Kříž on Thursday morning.

Supplies should be restored gradually on Thursday from 12 to 16 o’clock.

The highest daily temperatures should be between four and eight degrees Celsius.
