state of emergency

070118traeger_ddp_17x17.jpg Because of a wind called Kyrill which is raving around Europe, the State of Emergency was announcement by the local firedepartment of Berlin just a couple of minutes ago. So if you are still outside, you better get home. And even though in other cities/countries you would go looting now, please refrain from doing that here. ;-)

Kreuzberg is doing fine, I seem to be a wind-free zone. Other people have no electricity and so on. So let’s keep all fingers crossed and I hope everyone is save out there.

Update: (00:40 AM)

  • Berlin’s brand new central station had to be evacuated because of two loose steel girder.
  • Teltow (south of Berlin) is being flooded.
  • Many people without power.
  • Fire deparment: 500+ operations due to the weather.
  • All flights cancelled on all Berlin airports.
