High winds and storms lashed the country’s western and southern provinces as well as the Pomerania region in the north, Krzysztof Batorski, a spokesman for the State Fire Service, said on Thursday morning.

Some 29,000 firefighters were deployed to help pump water out of flooded basements and remove fallen trees from roads and railroad tracks, Batorski told reporters.

There were no reports of serious injuries in the aftermath of the extreme weather.

One person was slightly hurt when a tree fell on a car near the northern town of Puck, state news agency PAP reported.
