Heavy rains caused flooded streets and basements in parts of Zuid-Limburg on Tuesday evening. The KNMI had a code yellow warning in effect for the province, warning of downpours. Wednesday will be a mix of clouds and sun in the Netherlands, with strong winds along the coast and rain in the north during the morning.
Reports of flooded streets came from Maastricht, Geleen, and Valkenburg, according to 1Limburg. The train station in Maastricht flooded, as did many cellars, including those at UMC Maastricht. Several schools also sustained water damage.
The A2 toward Eindhoven was closed between the Kruisdonk junction and Meersen due to water on the road, as was the A76 toward Aken near Geleen.
