At least five dead as storm winds hit central Europe

storm winds hit central Europe
At least five people have died as strong winds hit across central Europe, killing two people in Poland, two in the Czech Republic, and one in Germany officials have said.

The victims in Poland and the Czech Republic were killed by falling trees.

The storm also knocked out power to thousands of Czechs and Poles.

The winds felled trees in the Czech Republic, with one elderly man dying after being hit in the town of Jicin northeast of Prague, and one woman was killed by a tree in a wooded area.

The weather delayed or halted traffic on several railway corridors and slowed road traffic, with a fallen tree blocking one highway just outside of Prague.

Rivers in the north reached the highest flood-alert levels.
