Dutch authorities have suspended all flights to and from Amsterdam Schiphol airport because of a severe storm.
Most rail traffic has also stopped as winds gust at up to 140km/h (90mph) across the Netherlands.
Schiphol, one of Europe’s busiest airports, gave no estimated time for flights to resume.
Dutch Twitter users have posted photos of trucks and trees blown over by the gales. Many trees have come down on railway lines.
Police have closed the centre of Almere, a city with about 200,000 residents lying just east of Amsterdam.
They tweeted an alert warning people to stay at home because of risk from the storm.
