Weather warning for wind turns amber for SW

High winds associated with Storm Arwen are expected to cause some travel disruption and damage in the SW and other parts of the country. This includes the north coast of Cornwall and Devon.

The Met Office says:

What to expect

  • Flying debris is likely and could lead to Injuries or danger to life
  • Probably damage to trees, temporary structures and buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs
  • Longer journey times and cancellations likely, as road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected
  • Some roads and bridges likely to close
  • There is a good chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage
  • Injuries and danger to life is likely from large waves and beach material being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and properties

The RAC advises:

“Drivers in those parts of the UK covered by amber weather warnings should consider postponing their planned trips until the storm passes. As well as making driving much more challenging, strong winds cause an increased risk of trees and power lines falling.

Bude currently has a yellow warning, shifting to amber tomorrow.
