It's a Bit Windy

So I live in Blackpool (well St Anne's which is right next to it but it's easier to say Blackpool for reference) and it's full on stormy weather here roofs are coming off trees are falling over onto cars and shit is getting blown around. Is anyone else experiencing these storms in the UK?

Re: It's a Bit Windy

Yeah, conservatory roof feels like its gonna go. Im in Liverpool and it died down earlier but seems to be picking up again...

Apparently a 70+ year old man died in Wiltshire after trying to move a downed tree that had knocked a power line down. Fried apparently... :/ Crazy weather but Friday is meant to be bad aswell

Re: It's a Bit Windy

Reminds me of wet-n-wild (theme park here in Australia, QLD with water slides and a wave pool).






In the months to come I shall regret saying this.

It's crap up here in West Yorkshire too, but not as bad as "Daaaarn saaaaarhfff!" apparently. It's going to get warmer and calmer over the next week or so though.

Re: It's a Bit Windy

I saw the Thames river (is that how it's spelled?) has overflowed and is giving the surrounding area a bath, time to wear your wellies.

UK storms: Homes without power and travel chaos
Tens of thousands of homes are without power and commuters are facing major travel disruption after hurricane-force winds battered the UK on Wednesday.


Blackpool. Lancashire, is among areas of the UK that have been battered by wind and rain


Quote:
While forecasters predict some respite from stormy weather on Thursday, another Atlantic low could bring gales of more than 80mph from Friday.

Severe flood warnings remain for Berkshire, Surrey and Somerset - all already hit by severe flooding.

Train services in parts of the UK have been cancelled and roads are closed.

On Wednesday afternoon a man, thought to be in his 70s, was killed in a suspected electrocution in Bremhill, Wiltshire, after a tree brought down power cables.

The Met Office said a wind gust of 112mph was recorded at Great Dun Fell, in the Pennines, while a rare "red warning" for wind was issued.

Power out

The Energy Networks Association, representing UK energy companies, said about 130,000 remained without power late on Wednesday night.

The figure included about 52,000 in mid and north Wales, and 19,000 in south Wales.

About 13,000 homes in the West Midlands were still without power while 10,000 homes in Cheshire, 2,500 homes in the Wirral and 5,500 homes in north Shropshire remained affected.

Some 3,000 homes in south-west England remained without power.

Energy companies said engineers were working through the night to restore power.

Bridge closed
Travel problems include:
  • The Severn Bridge, which connects Aust, Gloucestershire with Chepstow, Monmouthshire, is closed because of strong winds
  • Roads including parts of the A22 Purley Road, Surrey, the A361 in Burrowbridge, on the Somerset Levels, and the A4094 in Cookham, Berkshire, are all closed because of flooding.
  • Motorists have been advised to avoid the A9 in Scotland after several stretches were affected by snow and ice
  • Rail services throughout the UK remain disrupted
  • There are problems with services throughout Wales, including suspended Llandudno-Blaenau Ffestiniog services
  • Major disruption between London Paddington-Reading continues
  • Trains have been cancelled in parts of Yorkshire and north-east England. They include trains between Barnsley and Huddersfield, because of trees blocking the line
  • No trains will run between Liverpool Lime Street and Crewe until about 10:00 GMT because of overhead wires damaged in Wednesday's storms
  • Disruption caused by the storm-stricken Dawlish line, along the Devon coast continues

Re: It's a Bit Windy

I live in the attic of the house and the roof now has holes in and is letting in wind and rain. Good old British weather

Re: It's a Bit Windy

We're done for

Here in inner city London it's rain and howling wind. No structural damage as yet. I don't like the sound of the wind!
