The work of the Belgian airport is paralyzed by lightning


4 January 2014. To the airport of Belgium, severe thunderstorms with thunder and lightning struck. This led to the suspension of the Zaventem airport for almost an hour. Temporary termination of the airport was introduced to ensure the safety of employees and passengers.

The airport management specified that lightning or thunder can not cause physical damage to the ship itself, however it is dangerous for workers and pilots to be in the sky and even dangerous to move along the runway.

Airport less than an hour did not work, but in 17: 20 "Zaventem" worked normally, sending and taking planes.
