A couple of tourists who were in the Chochołowska Valley on Monday spoke on TVN24 about how difficult the conditions are in the mountains:

– We have been walking along Orla Perć for 40 years. What I saw today was unbelievable. (…) We decided to cancel our stay. While returning, we noticed that several dozen trees had fallen in one place. They were lying on top of each other. It was impossible to squeeze between the branches – said Mr. Janusz.
