Because of the wind, icicles fell from roofs onto streets and sidewalks in several places in the city.
One of the reasons for use was that scaffolding had to be secured, said the professional fire brigade of Rhonestadt. The fire brigades of Bernex, Carouge, Lancy, Vernier, Vandoeuvres, Collonge-Bellerive and Genthod were also deployed.
Pictures showed that the wind had blown large chunks of ice off roofs in some places. (SDA)
