Dutch Afghanistan war games mean no electricity for many people, disturbance of white storks


This video says about itself:

A Dutch Airforce apache helicopter flew into a couple of power cables across the river Waal in Holland. The helicopter was able to land safely. Because the cables are cut, about 50.000 families are without electricity.

Translated from Omroep Brabant in the Netherlands:

ROSSUM – The white storks of Rossum in Gelderland province have not all returned yet by now; however, most have. Thirty white storks were gone for days after an Apache helicopter of military airbase Gilze-Rijen cut a main electricity cable while flying and the area was full of repair people afterwards, which disturbed the birds.

That military helicopter was flying low over a densely populated area as a rehearsal for the war in Afghanistan.

That the helicopter cut the electricity supply meant darkness, no refrigerators, etc. for days for ten thousands of people in that region.
