The storm that passed over Warsaw on Monday evening knocked down trees in the estate at Czerniakowska. Some are lying uprooted. – One of them fell on the playground – describes the tvnwarszawa.pl reporter. We got the first information about the consequences of a weather breakdown in this place at Contact 24.
A strong storm passed through Warsaw on Monday evening. It thundered and rained intermittently throughout the city. At Kontakt 24, we received photos and recordings showing the scale of damage in the Pod Kopcem estate between Czerniakowska and Zwierzyniecka. The storm was so strong that several large trees in the square by the blocks were uprooted.
– Between the blocks of flats in the Pod Kopcem estate some very large trees have been overturned. Some are uprooted, lying across sidewalks and on lawns. The most damage can be seen in the vicinity of Czerniakowska 54. One of the large trees fell onto the playground, and there are also many broken branches and boughs around. However, I did not notice that any of them did more damage – describes the reporter of tvnwarszawa.pl Artur Węgrzynowicz.
As he adds, a cleaning team is already working on the spot. – Workers cut wood into smaller pieces and remove it from pavements. However, there are so many of these trees that some are still untouched. The works will take a long time, stresses Węgrzynowicz.
On Tuesday morning, the city’s fire brigade summed up evening and night-time interventions related to the storm. – The storm started around 7pm on Monday. It was then that the first applications started to arrive, most of them from the districts: Włochy, Ursus and Bemowo, which were flooded the most. Then the storm passed over Mokotów, the center and Praga, but there were fewer reports there. It took about three or four hours, and then there were still some reports. Firefighters were removing the effects of the storm until late at night. In total, we had over 200 interventions throughout Warsaw, informed Michał Konopka. He made a reservation that the Warsaw police did not record any incidents in which people would suffer.
