    Fire brigades intervened in Brussels 47 times on Sunday due to heavy rainfall and high winds.

    In the last 24 hours, fire brigades were called out to take care of three uprooted trees, four cases of private water damage, and six loose objects which posed a threat to public roads, said spokesperson of the Brussels fire department, Walter Derieuw.

    In addition, fire brigades were called out 34 times to take care of blocked drains, some of which were in the Louise tunnel in Brussels and the Georges Henri tunnel in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert.

    There are currently no ongoing or pending interventions.
