Winds hit hurricane strength in the mountains around the Säntis at 164 kph.

It’s all down to a major depression, called ‘Marielou’.

The annual appearance of St Nicolas in Thurgau was called off. A fallen tree destroyed a house in Flawil in Sankt Gallen.

The storm is bringing winter weather and snow down at 500 meters. Many Alpine resorts could be getting 100 cm of fresh snow over the next 24 hours.
