Residents of several voivodeships received an RCB alert on Monday in connection with forecasted violent weather phenomena. The services warn that there may be power outages.

The Government Security Center warns of storms and strong winds in the west of the country. “Attention! Today and at night (01/02/04) violent storms with hail and strong winds are possible. Be careful and secure items that may be carried away by the wind” – an SMS with a warning with this content was sent to recipients in some voivodeships: Lower Silesia, Lubuskie and Greater Poland.

Earlier, an RCB alert was sent due to strong winds and storms throughout the voivodeship Lesser Poland. “Attention! Strong winds and storms with precipitation are forecast this afternoon and at night (01/02/04). Power outages are possible. Avoid open spaces,” reads the message.

On the website of the Government Center for Security, people are reminded to remove all items from windowsills and yards that may be carried away by the wind and to park cars in a safe place if they were previously parked under trees. Additionally, you should ensure the safety of your pets, especially those outdoors. RCB also recommends preparing replacement lighting as wind may damage power lines. You should also be careful when driving a car, firstly because of breaking branches and trees, secondly – when leaving a sheltered road into an open space, there is a risk of the car being blown away.

Alert RCB is an SMS threat warning system. You do not need to sign up for an RCB alert. People who find themselves in the area of ​​a potential life-threatening crisis will receive a short text message (SMS) on their mobile phone with information about the type of threat, its location, and the source of the warning. It does not matter which operator we have concluded a contract with.

The amendment to the Telecommunications Law and certain other acts of June 11, 2018 imposes on all operators the obligation to immediately send a message to all users in the area specified by the RCB director. Messages are issued only in exceptional situations that may pose a real threat to human life and health.
