getting blown in holland|
In Amsterdam, cyclists who ventured out despite warnings from the fire department were blown over or, in some cases, blown backward.
City workers trying to divert cars from fallen trees watched as the wind swept their traffic cones away. The fire department warned people to stay indoors to avoid falling roof tiles and branches, and the city's historic canals were littered with fallen trash barrels, piles of toppled bikes and dozens of broken umbrellas.
In Utrecht, Netherlands, a construction crane toppled onto a university building, crumpling the roof and injuring six.
In the northern Netherlands, authorities also patrolled dikes as they were battered by seas whipped up by the storm. There were no reports of dike breaches.
