Storm Louis hits hardest in the Westhoek

The storm may have hit the hardest near Koutermolenstraat. The damage may even be the result of a downwind or a tornado.

“In Kortemark, the wind fell exactly in a residential area around Koutermolenstraat and Sneppestraat, where a dozen houses were damaged with roof tiles that had blown away, entire roofs that were two houses away. There was a lot of work to clean it all up. “, says Kristof Louagie of the Westhoek Fire Department.
