WARSAW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) — Powerful thunderstorms and heavy rains accompanied by strong winds hit a number of territories in the south of Poland last night. As a result of the weather turmoil power supply has been cut to dozens of thousands of power consumers.
Fire-fighting brigades had been summoned to 750 places since Monday evening until Tuesday morning. More than 230 houses had their roofs either swept off or destroyed during the storm. Around 400 rescuers have been deployed to eliminate the aftermath of the storm, according to a spokesman for the State Fire Service of Poland. Two people were injured as in the storm, the spokesman said.
Power supply was cut to around 50,000 households. Around 9,000 consumers left without power supply are expecting repairs of the damaged power transmission lines and elimination of other damages. Broken trees have created problems for railway workers and motorists. Dozens of roads have been blocked. Clean-up operations are continuing on main thoroughfares.
Weathermen have warned that similar weather cataclysms might occur soon in other regions as well.
