A big storm hit places like Britain, Germany, and Scandinavia for three days. It brought strong winds, lots of rain, and big waves that caused floods and power cuts. Some people had to leave their homes, and trains, planes, and boats had troubles too.
Since Thursday, this storm, called Babet, has taken four lives. The most recent was a 33-year-old lady in Germany. A tree crashed on her car. Before that, three people in England and Scotland lost their lives because of the storm.
Strong winds pushed huge waves onto shores, causing floods in Denmark and Germany. In Flensburg, Germany, water got super high, the highest in 100 years! Because of the water, some parts of the city had no power for safety.
Germany, Denmark, and Sweden had to stop some ferries and trains because of the storm. Copenhagen’s airport stopped 142 flights on Friday but started again on Saturday morning.
In Denmark, people had to leave their homes and camps because of bad weather. Many people had no lights. One town, Haderslev, even told everyone living by the coast to leave.
On Facebook, the town said, “The situation on the coast is now so serious that it is too dangerous to stay there. All affected areas are evacuated and the emergency response is pulling out its crews.” We don’t know how many people had to leave.
The weather people in Denmark said to watch out for big winds and high water all weekend.
In Scotland, they’re expecting up to 4 inches of rain on Saturday. Some places even have the highest weather warning, which means people could be in danger.
A weather guy, Jonathan Vautrey, said some parts of Scotland got a lot of rain because of the storm. It’s like they had almost two months of rain in just three days!
