Following the heavy rains Friday came the first snow for parts of eastern Germany, including Berlin and Brandenburg, the regional broadcaster for Berlin and Brandenburg reported. But there wasn’t much heavy damage, though workers were busy getting rid of fallen branches, local police authorities told the station.
The situation in Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg was different Friday, where winds up to 100 kilometers per hour raged well into the night. No injuries were reported, but there were lots of fallen branches blocking roads, authorities said.
