A very intense storm is currently developing rapidly over the Atlantic Ocean. Storm Ciaran is heading towards the UK and parts of France in particular with devastating wind speeds. It’s also all hands on deck in the Netherlands.
Autumn is hot on all fronts, and the storm season is very active this year. Over the past two weeks, storms such as Allen, Babbitt, Bernard, and Selen have come in quick succession. Now it’s Kieran’s turn, who could cause a lot of disruption on Wednesday and Thursday. For this reason, the weather services have already issued the first warnings, because it could be a very severe storm.
According to the Met Office, Ciaran is likely to bring strong winds, heavy rain and the risk of flooding in southern England and Wales. The speed can reach at least 130 kilometers per hour. Warnings are already in place in these areas and may be expanded in the coming days. Clean-up operations continue in many parts of England and Wales after Storm Babbitt, which left at least seven people dead and hundreds of people displaced by flooding. Northwestern France will also have to deal with Ciaran.
The situation in the Netherlands
The weather will also be windy in the Netherlands on Thursday, but the chance of a storm in our country is very small. Weronline: The weather will be stormy in our country starting Thursday, with strong winds over the land to stormy winds in the coastal areas (wind strength 6 to 8). Wind speeds can reach around 75 kilometers per hour across the country and up to 90 kilometers per hour right next to the sea. “There is a small chance of a storm on the coast.”
For the Belgians, the country will barely escape the strongest wind forces, but the winds will intensify sharply during Thursday. Belgium will then have to deal with fairly strong winds from the southwest. In the western provinces of the country, winds can temporarily blow strongly into a gale.
