Large parts of Noord-Holland and Flevoland is sitting without power. The rail traffic in northern parts of the Netherlands has come to a standstill due to this power outage. Many hospitals are also without power.
The talk show RTL Late Night presented by Humberto Tan started more than 15 minutes late last night because of the power outage in Amsterdam.
Rail traffic around Utrecht Central came to a standstill for a short time on Thursday, the NS reports. The cause was a power outage, which has since been restored.
At least 1,600 households in parts of Apeldoorn and Hoog Soeren were without power this morning. They were also without water, due to a water line breakage, reported Omroep Gelderland. It's not clear yet whether the latter problem has been solved.
