Dozens of Dutch tourists to the lake Garda in Italy, camping, damage incurred by a severe hailstorm.

At the alarm centre of the Dutch since the severe weather event of Wednesday evening about forty notifications were received, and had a spokeswoman on Thursday know. Many of these reports go over the broken windows of cars and caravans.

“It is very fierce. People spoke of hailstones as big as golf balls”, said the spokeswoman. “Now, We’re identifying what help is needed. Local ruitschadebedrijven get the press.”

The hailstones fell, according to the ANWB, especially on the south side of the lake. There are no reports about wounded.


Also elsewhere in Italy, are quite a few car windows of Dutch tourists killed in action by a very different cause: according to insurer Allianz, there is a considerable increase of the number of car break-ins.

“Where it is normal to have dozens of cases per week, you can now speak of a doubling.” For the past three weeks in the country, “striking a lot of diamonds typed”, it signals the company. Exact numbers does Allianz not.
