The second floor of a parking garage of supermarket Deka in Wormerveer collapsed on Tuesday. It is not yet clear if anyone was hurt or killed. Emergency services are at the scene, NRC reports.

At least five ambulances, the fire brigade and police are at the parking garage. Firefighters are not yet able to enter the collapsed structure, because it is still too dangerous, a spokesperson for local safety office Veiligheidsregio Zaanstreek-Waterland said to the newspaper.
