The ANWB advises people to work from home tomorrow due to storm Ciarán. The strong wind and rain can make it stormy and cause longer traffic jams than usual. The storm is expected to reach the Dutch coast during tomorrow morning.
According to an ANWB spokesperson, delays on the road can increase quickly in rain and wind. Motorists then keep more distance and incidents such as fallen trees increase traffic jams and delays. Because many trees still have plenty of leaves, they catch a lot of wind.
The ANWB calls on people to at least keep a close eye on traffic information. The NS also advises using the journey planner, but the Railways have not announced any additional measures. “We are closely monitoring developments and if anything changes, we will let travelers know,” said a spokesperson.
The KNMI has so far issued code yellow for storm Ciarán, except in the northeast of the Netherlands.
Cross the ocean at lightning speed
Ciarán was still east of Canada last night and is making the rapid crossing across the Atlantic Ocean today. Tonight the core is expected just south of Ireland and then tomorrow it will head over England towards the North Sea.
France, England, Wales and the Benelux are expected to be particularly hard hit.
