Over fifty houses were damaged on Monday night as a hailstorm wreaked havoc near the city of Radom, central Poland. Witnesses from the village of Jedlinsk told Polish Radio that a gale, followed by an intense hailstorm, lasted just a few minutes. However, over 50 roofs in the area were significantly damaged, as were power lines and trees. Although the storms were at their most intense in the vicinity of Radom, several other parts of Poland were affected by the extreme weather. Severe storms struck the Pomeranian region on the Baltic coast, likewise the southern Swietokrzyskie region. All in all, firemen were called to the scene of 340 separate incidents across Poland.
