On Sunday afternoon, a storm passed through Warsaw, accompanied by heavy rain. In some parts of the capital, residents experience flooded streets. Firefighters, in turn, received reports of water entering the buildings.

– We have about 20 applications at the moment. These are mainly flooded basements and underground garages. There are no injuries – told us just before 4 p.m. senior captain Wojciech Kapczyński from the Municipal Headquarters of the State Fire Service in Warsaw. He noted, however, that the final balance may differ. New reports are coming in, and in many places the water is receding by the time firefighters arrive.

Warsaw residents inform us on Kontakt 24 about flooding of a street in Bielany or difficulties on the viaduct near the Młynów metro station.
