“It’s living hell,” said South Moravia regional governor Jan Grolich.
The government said around 1,000 homes had been affected and local authorities were working to provide accommodation for people whose roofs had been destroyed.
Michaela Bothová, a spokeswoman for the South Moravian rescue service, told Czech TV that dozens of people had been taken to hospital by medical services and three of them had died. Czech media later said the number of fatalities had gone up to four.
Rescue teams from across the country, as well as from neighbouring Austria and Slovakia, have been deployed and tens of thousands of people have been left without power.
Prime Minister Andrej Babis, who is in Brussels for an EU summit, described what had happened as an apocalypse.

BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich explains Tornadoes aren’t as rare as you might imagine in Europe – it’s thought a few hundred touch down across the continent every year. Exact estimates vary, though, and some almost certainly go unreported as they hit in sparsely populated rural areas.
Tornadoes have been reported in every continent on Earth except Antarctica – and even there they are theoretically possible.But the US sees the most tornadoes of all, with more than 1,000 per year on average.
The country also records more of the most violent twisters than anywhere else in the world.Its mountainous landscape and proximity to the warm, moist Gulf of Mexico give the perfect conditions for violent supercell thunderstorms to form. And these are the storms that give birth to tornadoes.
