The KNMI weather bureau has issued a code amber weather warning for Noord-Holland province and the Wadden Sea islands between 2 am and 8 am, ahead of the arrival of storm Isha.

Gale force winds of up to 110 kph are expected to batter coastal parts of the province into the early hours of the morning. A code yellow warning applies to the rest of the country.

Airline KLM has canceled 130 European flights ahead of the storm because landing and take off capacity is likely to be limited by runway availability. Schiphol is recommending travellers check with their airline to check on their flights.

The infrastructure ministry has also warned that Monday morning’s rush hour may be very busy, with long delays.

In Ireland and Northern Island, the weather authorities have issued a code red storm warning. Code amber applies in Scotland, Wales and parts of England as well.
