The forecaster said very strong northwesterly winds could disrupt travel and cause structural damage to buildings, while flying debris could pose a danger to life. Roads, bridges and railway lines may close, and trains and planes are at risk of delays.Heavy and persistent rain will fall on to the already saturated ground, bringing a risk of further impacts such as flooding in areas that are already struggling to clean up from the heavy rainfall we have seen over the last week or so. There are possible gusts of 80 to 90mph in some exposed southern areas. It’s probably quite a nasty storm, this one.”
