Injured, closed schools and a piece of the roof of the Milan Central station that has come off: this is the provisional balance of the strong gusts of wind, up to 90 kilometers per hour, which are hitting Milan.

At the station technicians at work to verify the extent of the damage, while routes were set up to let passengers enter and exit the station safely.

Also uprooted the flags of Italy, Lombardy and the European Union placed above the entrance to the Regional Council in via Filzi, which has been cordoned off.

Very strong gusts of wind are hitting the city, with the municipality that has decided to close the accesses to public parks and has invited the population "not to use the tree-lined areas that are not fenced for the whole day".

Same measure also in Monza, where the municipal administration has decided to close the park and also the two cemeteries of the city.

In Milan "it is recommended to avoid traveling if not necessary and, in the case of using private vehicles, to avoid tree-lined avenues and proximity to building scaffolding".

The municipality has also closed the Castello Sforzesco and the courtyard of the Royal Palace, which normally allows the passage of pedestrians between Piazza Duomo and Via Pecorari.

A man and a woman of 64 and 66 were overwhelmed and injured by a collapsed tree in Rho. The man is serious, he ended up in the Niguarda hospital in red code, he suffered abdominal crushing, in the legs and in the shoulder. Only touched the woman, taken in green code to the emergency room in Rho.

A 76-year-old in Settala was also overwhelmed by a tree, crushed during pruning. The man reported trauma to the head, face, and legs and a broken foot. It was brought to the San Raffaele in red code. A 35-year-old worker, again due to the strong wind, fell from a scaffolding in Cornaredo: the rescue helicopter intervened to transport him to the San Gerardo hospital in Monza.
