Two more violent storms target Ireland and Britain

Britain is facing “almost unparalleled” natural disaster crisis, said the second most senior British military officer. [GCHQ this!]

The worsening disaster in Ireland and Britain has been caused by a barrage of major storms, and continuing.

  • Floodwaters have inundated about 6,000 homes in Britain since December.
  • The Wednesday storm has knocked out power to quarter of all homes in Ireland, where  trails of destruction have wept through  the country.

The next major storm brewing in the Atlantic is expected to crash into Britain on Friday.

The storm could dump significant snow on much of Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern England.

  • Sixteen Severe Flood Warnings remain in effect in southern England for Berkshire, Surrey and Somerset; thousands of people have been evacuated.
  • Some 355 additional Flood Warnings and Flood Alerts are in effect throughout the UK.
  • Power and transport networks across the country have been severely hit.
  • Many rivers in southern England have risen to their highest recorded levels.
  • River Thames is forecast  to rise to its highest levels for more than six decades, with Windsor, Maidenhead and Surrey the worst affected, said the UK Environment Agency.
  • The River Severn rose to a new record level of 5.65m in Worcester.
  • More homes will be flooded as rivers in Herefordshire and Worcestershire continue rising, the Agency warned.

Massive Storm Battering Ireland and UK with Torrential Rains and Hurricane-Force Winds

UK Met Office has issued a ‘Red Warning’ for hurricane force winds exceeding 160 km/hr, as a massive storm system barrels into Ireland and UK.

This is the first “red warning” issued by the UK Met this winter. It mean “danger to life” with widespread destruction/damage expected.

Wind gusts of up to 180 km/hr have battered the coast of southern Ireland, and gusts of 150 km/hr were recorded in South Wales.

In the counties of Devon and Cornwall, wind gusts of up to 155 km/hr have uprooted scores of trees and brought down power cables.

Meantime, southern England is bracing for more than a month of rain in the next few days.

Warnings Issued by UK Met Office at 10:27 on  12 Feb 2014

Valid from – 12 Feb 2014, 13:30
Valid to – 12 Feb 2014, 21:00

During this afternoon a swathe of exceptionally strong winds is expected to affect western parts of Wales and then some northwestern parts of England this evening, particularly in coastal areas. Winds are expected to gust 80 mph widely and possibly reach 100 mph in the most exposed locations in west and northwest Wales.

Winds of this strength can cause widespread structural damage, bringing down trees and also leading to loss of power supplies. In addition, large waves are likely to affect some coasts. The public should take action to alter their travel arrangements during this spell of storm force winds.

Chief Forecaster’s Assessment

A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across Ireland and southern Scotland this afternoon and evening. Damaging winds are likely to develop along the southern flank of this area of low pressure, especially in coastal locations.

Coastal areas of west Wales and northwest England are likely to bear the brunt as southwesterly (later westerly) winds widely gust to 80 mph and possibly 100 mph in the most exposed locations. The core of strongest winds will then affect parts of the coast of north Wales and northwest England early evening with peak gusts of 85 mph.
