According to scouts the storm came suddenly around 11 PM and immediately begun to break and topple trees, its worst intensity lasted about 2 minutes.  Half of the forest was completely destroyed and it took emergency crews 6 hours to literally cut through miles of broken trees to get to the camp.

After it was all over, 2 girl scouts were killed by the toppled trees and 20 others injured.

Polish Scouting Organization, ZHR, declared a month long mourning.
