During the storm yesterday the firebrigade arrived with a chain saw to cut down a tree which threatened to fall down like the other one in yesterdays post.
And here the top comes down. I was making photos with the company of our two local professional press phothographers, so it will maybe be seen in our local paper soon.
When the storm finally calmed down we went outside and saw a lot of damage in our neigbourhood, many trees had come down.
Normally we have storms in November but this was an early one and all the trees still had their leaves so they couldn't keep their balance against the strong winds.
The center of Amsterdam had also a lot ot trees coming down along the canals and unfortunately a woman died when a tree fell upon her. Watch this blog http://schlijper.nl/131028-00-storm-amsterdam.photo with a little movie of the damage in Amsterdam .
