Five people died and over 150 were injured after powerful thunderstorms struck Poland's Tatra Mountains; it prompted the head of an emergency services team to liken the event to a terrorist attack.

Thursday's lightning strikes were the worst tragedy in the Tatras since August 1937, when lighting killed four people on Giewont.

The lightning strikes hit the Giewont peak as well as other locations across the Tatras on Thursday.

The two became trapped in the Wielka Sniezna, the longest and deepest cave in the Tatra Mountains, on Saturday, when colleagues notified the rescue services. Authorities in the Tatra resort town of Zakopane announced three days of mourning and all entertainment events were cancelled.

Tourists climbing Giewont in Poland often aim to end their trip at the top, where a 15-metre iron cross was installed in 1901.

The cross is said to attract lightning. At least one of the victims was said to be a child.

"Nobody expected such a sudden storm to break out and from our human point of view it was something which was impossible to predict", Mr Morawiecki said in an emergency meeting in the region.

The Tatra Mountains lie on the Polish border with Slovakia and form a natural divide between the two countries, around 110 kilometers (70 miles) south of Krakow. The Slovak rescue service said a Czech was killed after lightning knocked him off Banikov peak. A Slovak man was hurt in a separate incident.
