Firefighters said they were called out more than 3,100 times to deal with the aftermath of extreme weather events in various regions across the country.

Powerful winds, heavy rains and hailstorms wreaked havoc in the central Mazovia region, the Silesia coal mining region and Małopolskie province in the south, and Lubelskie province in the east, Krzysztof Batorski, a spokesman for the State Fire Service, said on Friday morning.

He told public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency that the gales had destroyed the roofs of around 860 buildings nationwide.

In the villages of Librantowa and Koniuszowa, southern Poland, an apparent twister damaged a total of 60 buildings, including 30 homes, broadcaster Polsat News reported.
