Freak weather rips through Sigulda

Sigulda in central Latvia is renowned for its beautiful landscapes, but nature's attractions turned nasty June 20 with hurricane-force winds, torrential rain and hailstones leaving a trail of destruction in their path. 

The unseasonal storm uprooted trees, snapped of branches like matchsticks and caused damaging to fences and outbuildings throughout Sigulda district, as the pictures below show.


A strong storm front began to move over Latvia in the early afternoon, with dictricts in the south and east of the country warned that they might be next for fa spot of climactic rampage.
