BERLIN — Firefighters are pumping rainwater from basements and clearing flooded road tunnels after a storm swept through parts of western Germany overnight.
Germany’s far-west Aachen region was the hardest hit, with rescue services receiving hundreds of calls. Aachen police say nobody was harmed in the storm.
France, Belgium and Luxembourg were also affected by heavy rain and hail — weather that is more often seen during the summer than the spring.
Recent days have seen unseasonably warm weather in parts of western Europe.
The storm was moving north Monday toward Denmark.
