A freak wave of tornadoes in Poland has left at least one person dead and another 10 injured.

Local media said a national park was badly hit by one tornado that was between 800 and 1,000 metres wide.

One resident described the moment a tornado struck his property, felling trees and bringing down power lines.

“I was sleeping at the front of my house when a buzzing sound woke me up. I didn’t know what was happening. I looked out and saw a huge number of branches,” he said.

“Then there was a terrifying rumble. It all lasted for four or five minutes. When it all ended I looked around and saw that my yard was covered in fallen trees that had been growing nearby.”
