Thunderstorms appear on Thursday in many regions of Poland. They are accompanied by rainfall, hail and strong winds. The officer on duty, the Provincial Rescue Coordination Stand, said that from Thursday morning there were 131 reports related to weather conditions in the Śląskie Voivodeship, the largest number in Wodzisław Śląski.

The Institute of Meteorology and Water Management issued first and second degree warnings against hail storms.

Eight calls came from the Lubomia commune, and 15 from Wodzisław Śląski itself. The actions of firefighters mainly involved flooding buildings, basements and roadways. There were also interventions in the case of damage to the roof from lightning and damage to buildings, for example at ul. Wałowa, where it was probably also struck by lightning. As Filas assessed, the most difficult situation is behind them.

– There is no such flood of applications anymore, now only single applications enter – he said.
