Thousands of thousands of people in North Rhine-Westphalia were used for hours on Thursday by telephone, Internet and television. In civil engineering works a cable to the central junction in Münster, said the unified media operator in Cologne. With the help of a mobile satellite, television broadcast was renewed in mid-afternoon. However, the repair of the cable does not last until the evening. Municipalities in the Münsterland were mainly influenced by the storm, but there were also ruins in Remscheid and Erkelenz.
