The worst hit areas were canton Ticino and central areas of the country. But no part was spared.

There were gusts of wind hitting 139 kph in Chasseral in canton Bern and 116 on La Dôle.

Rivers broke their banks on Ticino and the A2 autoroute in Nidwalden was flooded.

Several passes were closed – many still are.

Although the worst is now over, Ticino was hit by heavy hail yesterday.
