Europe surrenders to the storm Ciaran

The impact of Storm Ciaran is increasing in many European countries… The storm had a negative impact on life in France, Belgium and England.

Storm Ciaran, which continues to affect France, causes transport disruptions and power outages.

According to the national press, the state of surveillance continues in the northwest and west regions of the country.

The storm caused serious material damage in France.

The alert level was raised to “orange” in 30 regions and to “red” in the regions of La Manche, Côtes d’Armor and Finistère.


In Finisterre, one of the regions most affected by the storm, roads were closed to traffic. Drivers in La Manche and Côtes d’Armor were also advised to “stay off the road”.

The Minister responsible for Transport, Clément Beaune, announced that a goods truck driver has died in the Aisne region.

Air travel was also negatively affected by the storm. While Brest airport in the Brittany region will be closed to air traffic until the morning, there will be flight delays at Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly airports in Paris throughout the day.

In addition, intra-regional train services in Brittany, Normandy, Hauts-de-France, Pays de la Loire and Center Val de Loire were cancelled. There will also be cancellations on interregional trains leaving Paris for the country’s west coast.

Because the storm caused damage to power lines, 1.2 million people, including 780,000 from the Brittany region, began the day without power.

Approximately 3,000 technicians were assigned to restore electrical service in the places where the outage occurred.

Warnings of heavy showers and flooding are issued due to Storm Ciaran, which affected the United Kingdom, Ireland, France and the Iberian Peninsula and whose speed reached 170 kilometers per hour.


Storm Ciaran, which reaches Western Europe, negatively affects life in Belgium.

The Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium announced that an “orange” alert was issued in the west of the country and a “yellow” alert in other areas of the country due to the storm that arrived over the Atlantic Ocean and affected Belgium since the morning.

In the western part of Belgium, near the ocean, the speed of the storm is expected to reach up to 120 kilometers per hour. The public was warned about incidents such as roofs flying and trees falling across the country.

Train services between the western Belgian city of Bruges and the coastal region have been cancelled. Disruptions to train services are also expected elsewhere. The speed of trains will also be reduced.

Eurostar train services between Brussels and London were also canceled for the day.

Disruptions are also expected in air transport in the country. Brussels airport officials announced that some flights could be canceled as the storm’s impact increases from midday and advised passengers to take precautions.

The storm’s impact is expected to diminish during the overnight hours.
