But the mayor of Hasselt said two were dead and 40 injured.Le Soir newspaper quoted a witness saying that the sky got dark, winds picked up violently as hailstones pelted those gathered.The festival's website lists a number of stages where concerts and performances were to be held during the three day event, which started on Thursday.Reports say some 60,000 people are attending the event.http://www.mygnrforum.com/index.php?app=forums&module=post§ion=post&do=new_post&f=27Video of the storm:http://www.deredactie.be/permalink/1.1090343 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
