DISCUSSION: Within the last few days, a series of strong-to-severe thunderstorms rolled through several parts of central-to-northern Romania. As these storms impacted certain parts of Romania, the primary updrafts of these thunderstorms passed directly over several populated towns and cities which led to fairly violent consequences at the ground. As illustrated in the footage above, these strong winds led to damage via downed trees knocking out critical power lines and/or those trees knocking out various regional residential and private infrastructure. Thus, these storms hit with incredibly dangerous consequences as the strong winds led to major regional impacts to people and society in general as they passed through the region. You can also see how there were several noticeably individual periods of stronger winds for brief periods of time which led to substantial wind damage.
