Heavy storms lash Poland, leaving 2 dead and 39 injured
Polish officials say that a heavy storm that ravaged parts of western Poland has killed two people and injured 39.
The victims were a 67-year-old man who was trying to secure his house's roof and a 58-year-old woman crushed by a falling tree.
Prime Minister Beata Szydlo visited the town of Zielona Gora in the region the hardest hit, meeting with local officials and vowing financial help for repairs.
Firefighters also worked Friday to remove fallen trees and help secure hundreds of torn-off roofs.
The storm also devastated the park of the Habsburg Palace in the town of Zywiec.
