Germany: strong Sabine Storm (Ciara) is hitting Frankfurt

This strong storm is in Germany on February 9, 2020. The Sabine Storm is known by UK as Ciara. It is creating violent hurricane winds in Deutschland. The fascinating storm is hitting Frankfurt.

In Cumbria (UK), thousands of homes and businesses are facing days without water after a mains pipe was damaged during Storm Ciara on Sunday. The damaged pipe near Kendal threatened supplies to about 8,000 properties. Horrendous weather conditions were also hampering repairs. United Utilities said it had free water bottle stations across the area. Free water bottle stocks would be replenished throughout the day, United Utilities said.

The massive powerful storm is battering parts of north-west Europe with heavy rainfall and strong winds of up to 150km/h (93mph).

The Storm Ciara (known as Sabine in Germany and Switzerland) (Elsa in Norway) has caused 100s of flights to be grounded and rail services cancelled in Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK.

Much of the access to exposed areas such as parks and coastlines has been restricted. Motorists have certainly been warned to be careful. The weather conditions continue to cause severe travel disruption.

The damage to homes and cars caused by storm Ciara over the weekend could be up to about €150m, insurers estimated on Tuesday. More reports of massive damage will certainly be coming in the next few days. The stormy conditions are continuing. However, it seems that Ciara has done less damage than the January storm of 2018 which cost €450m.
