Heavy storms affect 40,000 homes in Estonia
Winds reached up to 31 m/s overnight on Dec. 12

Over 40,000 home owners suffered black outs in Estonia overnight on Dec. 12 amid heavy storms.

Storm winds reaching 31 m/s severed electricity and mobile phone connection of the whole Vormsi island, reports Delfi.

On Dec. 13 morning, 42,911 households were deprived of electricity, most of them in Tallinn and Harjumaa, Järvamaa, Raplamaa, Pärnumaa and Lääne-Virumaa.

The storm started Thursday evening and the maximum wind speed recorded at night was 31.5 m/s at the Pakri Peninsula, ilm.ee reports.

The Vormsi island in Western Estonia was deprived of electricity and there is no mobile signal either. The ferry doesn't’t sail either till the storm subsides.

Ferry traffic was canceled Friday morning also on the Saaremaa-Hiiumaa route. The storm also deprived a few houses of roofs and felled trees on buildings and cars across Estonia. No people have been reported injured as the result.

According to weather services, the storm winds will subside during the day.
