Thousands of homes in northwestern France were robbed of electricity on Sunday when Storm Bella swept through the area.

More than 6,000 homes were without electricity in Normandy and about 4,000 in Brittany, said electricity distributor Enedis on Twitter.

The storm generated gusts of wind that reached 80 to 100 kilometers per hour inland and 100 to 120 kilometers per hour when it hit the west coast, according to the French meteorological organization Metéo France.
