Sprinkler Vehicles Cool Off Hotter-than-Rome Prague

Sprinkler Vehicles Cool Off Hotter-than-Rome Prague

This week already saw the hottest day of the year—forecasts reached 34.9°C on Tuesday, warmer than in Rome where temps measured 33°C yesterday. Now Czech meteorologists are predicting even steamier weather, and the city is ready.

From today, Prague’s Technical Communications Department (TSK) has ordered fifteen sprinkler vehicles to hit the streets of the Czech capital. By the looks of this video from iDnes.tv, tourists in Old Town Square appreciated the refreshing mist.

According to the publication, spraying vehicles are dispatched when temperatures exceed 25°C over a minimum of three consecutive days or when increased concentrations of ground-level ozone and heavy dust are present.
