One person killed in Rotterdam when storm brings down tree

SINT MAARTEN/THE NETHERLANDS – One person was killed in Rotterdam on Thursday evening after a sudden thunderstorm brought down a tree, which hit the car they were sitting in.

A second person in the car was seriously injured and is being treated in hospital, broadcaster NOS said. Rotterdam emergency service workers said they had 150 calls about flash flooding and falling trees and branches after the storm hit.

Trees were also brought down in Brabant, where there was very heavy rain for a short period. The A58 was closed for a time because of fallen branches. More scattered storms and heavy rain are forecast for Saturday. (DutchNews)
