Weather events

An emergency related to severe weather conditions is a situation that arises from an extreme weather event that risks causing major problems to the vital interests or basic needs of all or part of the country or the population of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

The emergency response plan (PIU) in the event of extreme weather conditions defines the actions the government should take in the event of the following weather conditions:

  • gusts of wind;
  • snow or freezing precipitation;
  • storms;
  • great/extreme heat;
  • great/extreme cold;
  • rain.

Each of the above weather conditions is divided into two vigilance levels:

  • the orange vigilance level;
  • and the red vigilance level.
