A violent storm on Tuesday evening hit the capital and 15 of Romania's 41 counties, killing one person and uprooting hundreds of trees, authorities said on Wednesday.

Ramona Nistor, spokeswoman for emergency situations, said a 49-year-old woman died in the southern town of Drobetu Turnu Severin after the roof of an abandoned house in which she had sought shelter collapsed.

Dan Nica, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister, said 533houses lost their roofs, seven social and economic establishments were destroyed, 600 hectares of farmland were flooded, and two bridges, 37 footbridges, five national and three village roads were affected.

The most hit counties were Arges, Valcea, Braila, Buzau, Giurgiu, Gorj, Ialomita, Neamt, Teleorman and Prahova.
