A cleanup operation is underway after Storm Dudley uprooted trees and blew off roofs across Drenthe, Friesland and Groningen. A number of roads were blocked as gale force winds battered the region.
In the Groningen village of Sappemeer, a tree fell on Violenstraat, but thankfully nobody was injured and no cars were damaged, RTV Noord reported.
According to the Omrop Fryslân, a road is blocked due to a fallen tree just outside the Frisian town of Joure, too. Emergency services, including police and fire crews, worked through the night to clear blockages and debris left by the storm in Jistrum, Rinsumageast, Elsloo, Drachten, De Westereen, Leeuwarden, and Schiermonnikoog.
More severe weather is on the way – a KNMI wind warning in place for tomorrow, Friday February 18.
Storm Eunice is expected to bring gales and showers to all of the northern provinces.
