Weather warning for strong winds

Weather warning for strong winds

"With Storm Dylan continuing to disrupt the nation, we are offering just evens for the wind speed to reach as high as 100mph in mainland United Kingdom this week, while we are not ruling snowfall in London", added Hill.

Flying debris could lead to injuries or danger to life, while some damage to buildings is likely, it has said. Some western coastal areas could see gusts of 80mph.

The Met Office says gusts of up to 80mph could hit the coast on Wednesday, as the tail end of Storm Eleanor sweeps across.

In addition to the alerts made by the EA, the Met Office had issued a yellow weather warning for high winds in the north west, valid from 6pm until 6pm tomorrow.

At least 12 people have been injured. "Praying for a swift recovery for all those injured", Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted. The multi-storey building is situated on the corner of the Commonwealth and Bronx River avenues in Van Nest.

This evening and overnight Storm "Eleanor" will bring a short period of disruptive winds to Cumbria and Lancashire which coincides with a period of high spring tides.

There will be very high seas along Atlantic coasts, with a risk of coastal flooding also.

However, late afternoon, weather officials issued a second amber wind warning. If you are in areas affected by the flood warnings please be prepared and where necessary take action to protect property, friends and family. Road conditions can quickly deteriorate during very heavy rainfall, with drains becoming swamped or blocked and standing water causing surface spray, reduced visibility and potentially leading to flooding.
