A 79-year-old woman died of injuries when a tree fell upon her, one more man in critical condition

Two people are seriously hurt due to hurricane force wind and storm in southern Ukrainian city Odesa. An elderly woman died. A man, who was stuck in his car when a tree fell on it, stays in intensive care.

Strong wind also brought down two building cranes in different parts of the city. Falling cranes caused significant damage, but no one was hurt. 

Odessites write in social media about dozens of fallen trees and abrupted wires. City administration called employers to give a day-off to their workers.
