Bad weather strikes again

First it is flooding, then heavy snow, tornados and earthquakes. Now it is the turn of the wind to cause chaos in Britain. This is the report from the Daily Mail:-

Winds of more than 80mph have ripped through Britain this morning as police warned travellers to use 'extreme caution' amid fears of heavy delays.

Trees have been uprooted and buildings damaged across the country, with the emergency services bracing themselves after a night of gale-force winds.
Thousands of people in the West Country and South Wales woke up to find they were without power this morning.

A spokesman for Western Power Distribution (WPD) said there were 4,500 homes without electricity across the region after falling trees crashed through power lines.
There have been no major incidents reported so far, but forecasters warn the extreme weather will continue across southern England throughout the day.

Again, we send our condolences to friends and relatives and hope that they are safe and sound.
