WATCH: Strong winds literally blow people away in Netherlands
A shocking moment was captured on camera in Netherlands when strong winds sent people flying on the street on Thursday.
This is the incredible moment an extremely strong gust of wind swept pedestrians off their feet in the Netherlands on Thursday.
The video, shot on January 18, shows two people falling to the ground and being pushed along by the force of the wind.
The Netherlands, like much of northwestern Europe, is being battered by a fierce storm.
The winds are so strong that one man was blown metres across a square near the High Court of the Dutch town of S’Hertogenbosch. When the man eventually managed to stop, shocked passers-by rushed to his side to help him.
With wind speeds of up to 86mph in the country, Dutch authorities have warned people to remain indoors and not to attempt to venture out into the storm.
