Weather warning issued as Storm Brendan sweeps the country

Published on by Jack Oliver (author)

Storm Brendan has hit the UK, bringing with it rain, wind, and even snow in some Scottish areas. Much of England has been put on yellow alert for wind, with reports of vehicles and trees being knocked over under the gusts.

In the South, including Sussex, another yellow warning has been put in place for rain.

The warning for rain represents the risk of 'spray and flooding on roads', 'bus and train services probably affected' and 'flooding of a few homes and businesses'.

For Brighton residents, living by the sea may make the effects of the wind increase and become a nuisance or even a danger.

If the risk of heavy rain becomes hazardous, the Met Office website provides advice for what to do should a flood occur.

Storm Brendan has recorded 80mph winds, and seven flights due to land at Gatwick were redirected to other airports.

The storm has caused much disruption across the UK. Parts of Wales and Northern Ireland were left without power and multiple train lines in England suffered delays as a result of problems caused by the storm.

More disruption is expected on Wednesday (15th) as the weather warnings remain in place for another day.
