EGON causes record sea-level rises in Denmark

Storm EGON, the second of two powerful storms to hit northern Europe over the weekend, cut power to hundreds of  thousands of people in Norway, caused record sea-level rises in Denmark, and battered Sweden.

EGON pounded Denmark with hurricane strength winds for about  15 hours and became “the worst storm to hit the country since December 2013,” said a report.

Strong winds from EGON and the preceding storm DAGMAR raised sea levels to new record highs in parts of the country, the report said.

Denmark has its hottest year on record

Denmark reported its warmest ever annual average temperature.  The Danish Meteorology Institute (DMI) said the 2014 average temperature was 10.0°C.

“For the first time ever, the annual average temperature in Denmark is at double digits, a feat that meteorologists say is ‘unthinkable without climate change,'” said a report quoting DMI.
