The night to Saturday will bring strong gusts of wind - up to 25 m/s in the coastal regions. Furthermore, there's a possibility that on night to Monday will bring even stronger winds of up to 30 m/s across all Latvia, according to the State Geological and Meteorology Center. 

The Fire and Rescue Service (VUGD) urges caution and has compiled a list of simple tips to keep you safe during the storm.

  • Don't go outside without a pressing need to do so;
  • Close your doors, windows and any hatches;
  • For flats - fasten the objects on your balcony;
  • Don't sit near windows as falling trees and other objects can cause damage;
  • Charge your mobile phone before the storm as a power blackout might happen.

Call 112 in case of an emergency.

If you see any damaged power lines, don't go near them and call 802 00404 to report the damage.
