At least a hundred years old pine crashed in a storm. The same storm loosened the sheet metal roofs, disrupted traffic and brought down trees. The old man was killed after he has gone to repair wind damage, and run over by falling tree below. The accident occurred Paimio. This figure is close to my home.

@The Mouse: The wind was unusually strong for up to about 30 m / s. It dropped close to the plate roofs of the houses, and did more evil. The Ministry of Transport and was a lot of electrical interference. Repair some of the power lines could take days. This area will be all right.

@Doug: Strong wind grabbed the tree. Wood was slightly damaged at some point and the frame broke. Fortunately no one was injured. A little fence fell down, but it is easy to fix.
