Germany: A powerful storm named Hurricane Nadia in Germany swept over many parts of Europe on Sunday leaving a death toll of 5 in its wake.
There were reports of more accidents linked to high winds in Poland and the Czech Republic.
A 27-year-old man died on Sunday in the Northern Polish province of Pomerania when a tree fell on his car. Another person was also injured in the accident.
In Germany police reported that a pedestrian was killed by falling debris.
The man was struck by an election poster in Beelitz, a town south-west of Berlin, a spokesperson for the local police said.
The horrific accident happened just after 10PM on Saturday when the storm, named Nadia in Germany, picked up its pace overnight.
What is the situation with the storm in Hamburg?
In Hamburg, a heavy storm tide submerged Germany’s port city’s famous fish market in the Altona district. The city was struck with a water level measured at 2.84 metres about average in the Sankt Pauli district.
The intense storm led to the cancellation of rail traffic and several delays. The train stopped long-distance traffic in the northern federal states of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Bremen for about 50 minutes, but it has now started again, said a railway spokesman on Saturday evening in Berlin – swp.de.
