Law and Justice party candidate Andrzej Duda celebrated his victory in Poland's presidential election in Warsaw, Sunday, after gaining a total of 53 percent of the vote in the second round of the election. His main rival, incumbent President Bronislaw Komorowski, won 47 percent of the vote with an overall turnout of 56.1 per cent, according to the latest exit polls. In the first round of the presidential ballot on May 10, Duda had also managed to claim victory over Komorowski by 0.99 percent. When Duda takes over from Komorowski, who has been in office for five years, he will become Poland's sixth president since the fall of communism in 1989. Duda's previous political experience includes serving as a legal aide to former President Lech Kaczynski before he died in a plane crash in Russia in 2010. Following his victory, Duda addressed his supporters saying that "the president of Poland has to serve his nation. Above all he has to listen to his people and has to be open-minded. That's why the doors of the Presidential Palace will always be open." Speaking to his supporters after the election, Komorowski conceded defeat to Duda and said that the result was the "decision of the citizens of the free and democratic Poland".

Severe floods, that have so far claimed the lives of at least two people, could be seen spreading across large parts of Oklahoma, destroying houses and cars in the town of Washington, Sunday. The floods were caused by record-breaking levels of rainfall that led several river banks to burst on Saturday night and Sunday. Large parts of northern Texas were also affected by the storms and floods with up to 10 inches (25cm) of rain falling in a 24-hour period. Hundreds of homes have been damaged, along with several key pieces of infrastructure including two bridges in Texas that were completely washed away in the torrents. Thousands of people have been evacuated from high risk areas, and warnings and alerts have been announced across several neighbouring states including Colorado and Kansas.
