Ingo Wrecks Havoc

Germany faced the wrath of Ingo on Thursday night as the low pressure system spread from the Alps in south to the North Sea. Although no lives were lost, the storms and heavy shower caused major damage to nature and propery. Many trees were uprooted and streets and cellars were flooded. Some places even reported electricity breakdown. As a result, there were train delays. A spokesperson of the Deutsche Bahn said, " It was worse than a snow fall. The rain losened the soil which caused the trees to lose grip. And the storm did the rest." The highest speed of Ingo,194 km per hour was measured in the Alps.
