Here the storm was a bit stronger than that :)) . Windforce 11, the Netherlands
didn't have that for 12 years! Hundreds of tree have fallen, the train traffic
has been stopped all night for reparations, and still didn't work well this
morning (I was supposed to go to a conference, but there was no train to the
town I had to be :((( ), and quite a few buildings have suffered. The roof of
the Province House of Zuid Holland fell, and the police had to put a car on it
to prevent it to fly down the road! (and even then, it was just, the car was
nearly taken away by the roof!) And unfortunately a few people died...
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
