Strong winds will hit Lithuania on Thursday evening, meteorologists warn.

Lithuania’s seaside regions will be the most affected. There, gusts of wind will reach a near-hurricane speed.

According to the website Weather and Climate in Lithuania, most of “the horror will be concentrated on the seaside, where gusts will reach 28-32 metres per second. This is a strong storm”.

The wind will be strong enough to break trees and their branches, it added.

People should be careful, protect their property, and make sure that all easy-to-lift items are attached or brought inside, experts said.

On Wednesday, the Lithuanian Fire and Rescue Department sent an emergency alert, warning of a “heavy storm” on Thursday and Friday.

The wind is expected to subside over the weekend.
