The storm

In the beginning of January, a strong windstorm swept through the Baltics, leaving some regions without electricity, eroding beaches and felling trees.

As the initial shock has passed, we would like to share some photos which were taken from the following sources:

1 – Jurmala City Council

2 – Olga Dragileva

3 - Michael Eglit (Hamlet)

Also, we are providing a link to view a video of the storm at Saulkrasti beach in Latvia (Winamp Media File).

If you have photos on this subject and you are willing to share them with us, please send them to info@meeting.lv
