AMSTERDAM – The provinces of Zuid-Holland and Noord-Holland were particularly hard hit by the storms passing over the Netherlands last evening. The fire brigade was kept busy for hours pumping out cellars and tunnels last night in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, The Hague and the Haarlemmermeer area. 
Schiphol halved its number of flights at the beginning of the evening because of the rainfall and thunderstorms. That caused considerable delays.

The storm moved over the country from south to north, followed by a second depression from Belgium. West-Brabant felt the brunt of the storm on Monday morning. Hailstones caused a great deal of damage in Putte.
