A roof of an outbuilding was torn off by strong wind gusts associated with a secondary low. "18 stycznia podczas przechodzenia niżu wtórnego po godzinie 20:30 zerwało dach w budynku gospodarczym w miejscowości Karczyn. Zrzucony przez wiatr dach uszkodził również budynek mieszkalny na którym się zatrzymał. Na miejsce zostały zadysponowani jednostki OSP KSRG Kondratowice i Jrg Strzelin. Strażacy zabezpieczyli miejsce zdarzenia, oraz usunęli zniszczone poszycie, które opierało się o drugi budynek. Istniało realne zagrożenie, że dach który leży już na ziemi zostanie ponownie przeniesiony siłą wiatru i wyrządzi ponownie szkody. Po godzinie 22:00 jednostki zakończyły swoje działania".
