Type: Conference paper/poster
During the fieldwork period of ESS 2 in Slovakia the windstorm in the most attractive Slovak mountains destination The High Tatras occurred (on 19 November 2004). It lasted just a few hours but damaged more than 12,7 million m³ of forest and extent of damage is estimated at 1,8 milliards SKK. This event was of a great significance for Slovak citizens. Media of all kinds had monitored the situation in the Tatras for at least one month. The reflections of the event in the responses of Slovak respondents are presented in the paper. On the three groups of respondents (interviews taken before the disaster, immediately after and some time after it) the impact of the event at the media watching, reading, political engagement and well-being was analyzed.
