A woman has died in a storm in Serbia after a tree fell on her car

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — A falling tree killed a woman in Serbia in a heavy storm Tuesday that also caused power cuts and pummeled towns with hail.

Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said the tree fell on the woman’s car in the northern town of Sombor.

Dacic urged caution during extreme weather conditions, which experts say is partly caused by climate change.

Earlier, hail and heavy rain fell in western Serbia, briefly cutting electricity in the southwestern town of Novi Pazar.

In neighboring Croatia, strong winds and rain felled trees in some areas.
