The water level did not rise enough to threaten the Danish coasts, as was feared.
“Along the north coast of Zealand there is a risk that the water level could rise by one metre,” warns Anders Brandt. DR‘s weatherman before the storm came.
Fortunately, as TV2 reportedthe storm did not pose any major threat to Danish coasts and cities.
DR was not the only way off the mark, as the BBC also dropped a climb that reported: “In Copenhagen, 280 Danes had to leave their apartment complex because it was not safe to stay there anymore on Friday night. The 1950s flats have a design flaw and cannot withstand high winds.”
It turns out that the 280 residents in three blocks on Østerbrogade 110, located between Skt Jakobs Plads and Nøjsomhedvej, were actually required to stay in their building due to fear that they could be hit by falling debris from the building’s copper roof. The road was therefore closed at around 22:00.
“It turned out that the roof boards had acted as sails, so that both the rafters and the roof structure had come loose. We asked the residents to stay indoors because it was dangerous to go out,” explained Martin Kjærsgaard from Hovedstadens Beredskab to Kobenhavnliv.dk.
