At least five people have died and hundreds more have been injured during a thunderstorm in Poland and Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains.

Four of the victims were on the Polish side. One person died in Slovakia.

The Polish mountain rescue service chief told a national news agency that “There were a lot of incidents involving lightning strikes today in the Tatras.”

Poland’s Prime Minister then added that over 100 people were injured in the strikes.
