Several people were injured after a violent hailstorm hit southern Germany, causing extensive damage to houses and cars.
Emergency services in Munich received more than 300 calls after chunks of ice the size of golf balls pounded the region.
Windows were smashed on several cars and homes submerged under water from the torrential rainfall.
Meanwhile up to 50 millilitres of rain fell in just one hour in the south of Saxony.
It comes as eastern Germany was also hit by storms that were so loud they woke people up with 50,000 lightning flashes recorded across the region, local broadcaster RBB 24 reported.
However, a spokesman for the Berlin fire brigade said there was no major storm damage.
The German Weather Service warned there is further a risk of thunderstorms, torrential rain, high winds and hail over the next day or two as temperatures of up to 32C are expected across the country's east.
