Short summary
On 1 August 1674, very severe thunderstorms occurred along a squall line from northern France to the northern parts of Holland, where damages were particularly severe. Using reported and pictured observations of damages, a reconstruction of this storm is made and an interpretation using modern meteorological concepts is given. Special attention is given to the city of Utrecht, which was hit hardest and where the impact of this storm is still recognisable in the cityscape.
