Severe Storm Xynthia

Recommended Posts

A severe storm named “Xynthia†affected Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, France, parts of south-east England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and Austria. Strong gusts on 27-28 February 2010 caused extended damage on traffic routes, electrical power outage, destruction due to flooding at the French Atlantic coast and more than 60 losses of lives. Most of the damage was in France and western Germany. The track of this storm and its rapid development were outstanding, but the magnitude of the gusts was comparable to other violent storms in the past.

An interesting paper on the storm by Dr. Peter Bissolli.


My french isn't too good but I think this how the models handled it.
