Due to the severe storm, which was especially effective in the north of Germany, the National Railway Administration Deutsche Bahn (DBN.UL) stopped long distance services in 16 of 7 states in the country.
Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Brandenburg and Berlin are among the states where long-distance train services have been stopped due to severe storms.
The German Meteorological Office (DWD) announced on its tweeter account that the speed of the wind reached 152 kilometers per hour on the top of the Harz Mountain.
DWD warned that people should not go out on the streets except for mandatory situations, due to a severe hurricane-like storm that will take the country under its influence and will last until the end of the week.
The storm, called “Ylenia,” caused power outages in nearly 170 cities and towns. About 60 families in the states of Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia were left without electricity due to the fallen trees. In many states of the country, schools were closed due to the storm. (euronews)
