Local media reported 29 damaged roofs in Warłów. Skywarn Polska storm spotters confirmed the scale of the damage. The uttermost damage was concentrated around the center of the village and measured approximately 200 metres in width. Several roofs of the outubildings were severely damaged, but most of the buildings sustained minor damage (broken groups of tiles, mainly on the windward side of the storm). Several trees were downed, some of them damaged a medium-voltage power line south of the village. According to the witnesses, the storm was major and very rapid - the peak of the storm lasted at most several dozen seconds. A linear thunderstorm was observed on the radar. Most probably a microburst occured according to Skywarn Polska damage survey. Source: "Nawałnica w Warłowie – 18.03.2017 r.", Stowarzyszenie Skywarn Polska - Polscy Łowcy Burz, 19 MAR 2016.
