Its been said that during those rainny days couple of people died from the lightning. Houses have been destroyed, like the old peoples home in Ilmajöki where the whole roof flew out. Its sad but its true. Try to stay indoors whenever you see things like this happening! My condolences to all families and friends who lost their loved ones.
