Storm Malik hits northern Germany

(Belga) The city of Hamburg was hit overnight from Saturday to Sunday by storm Malik – called Nadia in Germany. Part of the Sankt Pauli district is notably under water. Other coastal cities like Bremen have been affected, but to a lesser extent, according to the federal maritime and hydrographic agency.

In Hamburg, several vehicles were destroyed by the floods. A boat also got stuck under a bridge in the port area. No injuries are currently to be deplored, however, notes the newspaper Tagesschau. The highest water level was reached around midnight, with 2.84 meters. The emergency services carried out several hundred interventions, for uprooted trees and flying roof elements. Rail traffic was severely disrupted. The storm also hit Scandinavia and the UK hard, where at least two people died. (Belga)
