Four Die In Storm In Hungary
Fire-fighters were alerted to hundreds of locations as a storm hit south west Hungary on Friday night.

Four people died when a 40-metre high tree fell on a car carrying five people in Dombóvár, Tolna county.

Torn tree branches and electric overhead cables caused problems as the storm passed through south-west Hungary.

A total of 40 people had to be evacuated from 13 properties in Hegyhátszentjakab, Vas county. They have since been allowed to return to their homes.

Traffic had to be restricted on several roads after heavy rains.

Most alerts came from Vas, Zala, and Bács-Kiskun counties.
