The ANWB advises road users not to take to the road on Mondays if this is not necessary. Storm Corrie will rage over the Netherlands on Monday and will be at its strongest between 8 a.m. and 12 noon, according to an ANWB spokesperson.

It can become dangerous on the Dutch roads on Monday morning due to storm Corrie. The ANWB spokesperson states that a few groups of motorists should be especially careful: “What worries me most are empty delivery vans, cars with trailers and trucks without freight. The past shows that these mainly cause problems. ask yourself whether they should go on the road.” But also vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists and cyclists should stay at home if at all possible. “If you don’t have to go on the road, stay home. Or at least adjust your driving behavior.”

The KNMI has declared code orange for Monday in North Holland, Friesland and the Wadden area and code yellow for the rest of the Netherlands. Heavy gusts of wind will occur in the coastal provinces from early Monday morning. Particularly in the second half of the morning, the northwest of the country has to deal with very strong wind gusts of 90 to 110 km/h. Very strong wind gusts of 100-120 km/h will occur in the (north)western coastal area, possibly also around the IJsselmeer.
