1 min read

Germany's national weather service has warned that the western parts of the country could have strong storms before Friday, as well as possible tornadoes.

The DWD weather service is forecasting heavy rain and hail in western and northwestern Germany on Thursday, with some areas expected to have thunderstorms.

Authorities in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia have been on high alert following deadly floods that hit parts of Germany and Belgium last July, writes euronews.

Germany, like many of its European neighbors, has experienced a warmer and drier spring than usual this year, with little rain and lots of sunshine.21Media
