DE BILT – Meteorologists at the KNMI institute say we will not be seeing a "super storm" this weekend. British meteorologist Piers Corbyn predicted earlier this month that a storm with wind speeds of 200 km per hour would hit northwestern Europe at the end of November.

The reports have no scientific basis whatsoever, says a spokesperson for the KNMI. "The weather may be stormy in the coming days, but that is normal for this time of year."

The KNMI says it has received a great many phone calls and emails from worried people since Corbyn's prediction. "Everyday we get between 50 and 100 phone calls asking about the ‘super storm'."
