Fire and rescue services in Poland received more than 700 calls due to the high wind and snowfall caused by the “Fredericka” hurricane. The challenges relate mainly to hundreds of trees sunken by the wind. Two people were lightly injured as a result of a bus accident in the Wielkopolska Voivodship.
The spokesman for the State Fire Service Pavel Frontchak said that the Lower Silesia, Western Pomerania, Wielkopolskie, Pomorskie and Lubuskie voivodeships were the most severely affected by the weather.
“Strong wind damaged 65 buildings, including 45 residential buildings. One of the most serious incidents occurred in Silesia, where the wind tore the roof from a house where 15 families live. For several hours the firefighters fixed the roof”, – told Frontchak.
In addition, the Government Security Center reported that 30 thousand consumers in the country remain without electricity.
It should be noted that 3800 firefighters and volunteers are struggling with the effects of bad weather.
Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Moravawicz initiated a meeting with the ministers of defense, health and energy on the situation.
