Gale-force winds and pouring rain raged in the town of Burgas, on the Southern Black Sea coast, late on Saturday, uprooting trees and blocking roads.

Rescue teams of the Civil Defense agency worked all night long to fix the damages, whose cost is yet to be estimated.

Four cars were smashed out of recognition by the falling trees, while dozens of districts were left without electricity.

The storm caused a breakdown in the electricity supply to the coastal resort of Sunny Beach and plunged it into darkness for twenty minutes.
