Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Hurricane Force Winds Batter Netherlands

Posted by feww on March 31, 2015

Major air and sea traffic disruptions as hurricane-force winds batter N. Europe

Hurricane-force westerly winds, with gusts of up to 120 km/h sweeping in from the North Sea, disrupted air, land and marine traffic throughout the Netherlands, prompting the Dutch meteorological office (KNMI) to issue a “code red” warning for the country’s coastal provinces.

Some ferry services and scores of flights to and from Schiphol airport were cancelled, local media reported.

The flight cancellations were the second in three days, following a major power outage at Schiphol Airport on March 27, which also led to air traffic chaos.

Authorities also closed two container terminals at the port of Rotterdam, forcing ships to queue out at sea.

    interesting to see how Reuters headline changed from
    “Air and sea traffic disrupted as 120 km winds batter Netherlands”
    to
    “Hurricane-strength winds batter northern Europe, hit travel”
    after Fire-Earth said:
