Kripom: MV gets a “watered-down version”.

“We in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern tend to get the skinny version,” meteorologist Stefan Kripom of Hiddensee’s NDR weather studio said on NDR MV Live. “I don’t see a significant storm risk in terms of hail or storm right now,” Kripom says. The depression moves over Mecklenburg-Vorpommern at night, so no hot air is dumped, and there are no big jumps in temperature, opposing the risk of major storms.

Meteorologist: ‘It’s really raining’

“But I expect there will be heavy rain, and that means really heavy rain. It’s hard to say exactly where.” In some parts of the country it is possible to accumulate up to 30 liters per square meter – including with minor flooding. “But the whole thing will be over tomorrow morning. Nothing worse will happen,” Kribom assesses the situation. He also says the situation is very difficult to locate because the exact path of rain and thunderstorm stripe can still change. According to Kribom, the first drops will fall around 6 or 7 pm on the Elbe, after which the rainy area will move east.

Especially in the south of the country, DWD assumes heavy rain lasting several hours in amounts of up to 50 liters per square meter, and there can be gusts of strong winds of up to 100 kilometers per hour from west to south. According to the warning, the storm is expected to move northeast of the country after midnight.

Water damage in Rostock school

At the Baltic School in Rostock, there was water damage, which led to the cancellation of face-to-face lessons on Friday. As reported by the Ministry of Education, it rained so heavily through a leak in the roof that all the toilets overflowed and could not be used. In addition, the electrical system failed in part of the school due to a short circuit. Emergency care was established for the fifth and sixth grades. Older age groups were assigned household chores and released to go home. It is now being checked if classes can resume on Monday.
