Powerful storm raged with large hail, heavy wind battery Vilnius area

A violent line of storms with large hail pounded the Vilnius are a late Tuesday, bringing torrential rains and powerful wind gusts and leaving hundreds of homes without power.

The storm system may have produced small tornadoes in areas of Vilnius, where there were buildings with structural damage, widespread reports of downed trees and winds.

Lithuanian Weather Service meteorologist Matt Friedlein said his office had “numerous reports of damaging winds” from throughout the region.
