Thunderstorms cause a lot of firefighting workEnglish 

The tent camp in Hek has been canceled, up to 200 fire brigades are operating in the district

The thunderstorm that took place in Borken district on Thursday evening kept the firefighters in tension. The Hikum tent camp was demolished, often because of basements or trees and branches in the streets.

Heavy rains and strong winds on Thursday evening triggered 180 to 200 fire brigades across the area. Mike Matman from Borken Management Center drew this balance at around 11 pm. In the evening, members of the volunteer fire brigade were asked to seize the equipment houses, taking into account the warning of the German Meteorological Service.

As reported by the rescue control center of the fire brigade, there were so many actions that the houses of the equipment were seized. As of 20:40, almost 60 operations have already been completed. Or at this point it was quiet again in the southern district, the cells of Stadtlon, Gronau and Hack protect everything.
