On Sunday, many Limburg events fell into the water. Due to weather conditions, the festivities surrounding the opening of Kasteelpark Nijenborgh in Weert, for example, have been moved to Monday evening. “Although the organization started its day full of optimism, a series of rains followed in the afternoon which turned the newly planted lawn into a swimming pool,” the event organizer said.
At Tienray, every effort has been made to ensure that the Gaellus Open Air Festival continues. At about 13:00, the organization set up an extra tent so that the party could begin an hour later. A pump was needed to empty the site.
The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) has announced a yellow symbol for heavy showers with thunder until 19:00 pm Sunday. According to the institute, “With evening and night, the rains in the south decrease.”
Rain also causes problems in other parts of the country, for example in East Brabant. The police have received many reports, especially from the regions of Eindhoven, Valkensward and Velddhoven.
