Motoring organisation ANWB is advising people to work from home tomorrow if possible because storm Ciarán is heading for Dutch shores.
The KNMI weather station has put out a code yellow weather warning for Thursday, when strong winds and rain are expected to batter coastal areas in particular, causing problems for traffic.
The KNMI is monitoring the storm’s progress carefully and may change the weather warning from yellow to amber if necessary.
Ciarán is expected to make landfall in Ireland tonight and will then make its way to the Netherlands via England. France and Spain are expected to bear the brunt of the storm and have already put out a code red weather warning.
Ciarán comes close on the heels of storm Babet, which killed four people in Britain.
