Winter storm Pella causes inconvenience in Limburg | 1 Limburg

Limburg had to deal with turbulent weather on Sunday.

Winter storm Pella swept our county and caused inconvenience in some places.

Fireplace flap blown
The fierce winds created a dangerous situation in Kerkrade when the stove piece ripped apart. The fire brigade moved to remove the cap piece. Elsewhere in Kerkrade, a side wall of a house in Voorterstraat has burst. Because the remaining stones also posed a risk of collapse, the fire brigade decided to reinforce the wall.

In Gennep, firefighters also had to attend due to storm damage. At Maaskempweg, a tree blew up another tree. Because the tree was completely prone to falling off, firefighters had to cut a block. The road was closed for a short time due to works.

Tree on the roof
A tree fell on the roof of a house in Hasselderheadlan in Velden. Firefighters have been called in to remove the tree. Nothing is known about the damage yet.

Volatile waste
Near Montgomerystraat and Eisenhowerstraat in Sittard, rubble from the demolition building was carried away by the wind. As a precaution, emergency services cordoned off the area. According to a reporter on the site, the contractor has been notified to solve this problem.

Traffic disturbance
Fallen trees caused a traffic disturbance on the link road A2 to A76 in the direction of Belgium. Because trees ended up on the road at Kerensheide Junction, the connecting road was closed for a while. This disrupted traffic. According to ANWB, the traffic problems were limited, as it is quiet Sunday morning.

the trees
Trees have also been blown up in Venlo. The fire brigade received a storm damage report at the Auxiliatrixweg at around 08:55. The fallen tree blocked the path here. Firefighters cut the tree to pieces. The road reopened around 9:15 am.
