Schiphol airport cancelled 90 flights because of the strong winds, which meant only one runway could be used, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. All affected passengers were rebooked on new flights on Thursday and Friday, the airport authority said.
Flash flooding caused problems in some areas and several trees were brought down but few problems on the roads were reported.
