Storm Gorm has just blown over the Danish kingdom, toppling trees and tearing tiles off of roofs, and the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) is already warning more storms are heading to Denmark in the next three months.

According to Thyge Rasmussen, a supervisor at DMI, a new storm is already forming over the Atlantic.

“As it looks now, the clouds will move northeast towards northern parts of Scandinavia,” Rasmussen told DR.

Stormy January
Half of the recent storms and hurricanes have hit Denmark during the past three winters.

January is the most windy month of all, with 30 classified storms since the ’50s.

In total, DMI has registered 84 storms and hurricanes in the past 55 years.
