Met Office issues ‘stay indoors’ alert

The Met Office has issued a ‘stay indoors’ alert ahead of predicted 100mph winds as Storm Eunice hits the UK on Friday.

This comes after Storm Dudley caused travel chaos and widespread power outages.

Storm Eunice is set to arrive on Friday, and is expected to bring further outages, damage and and travel disruption along with it.

Despite a break in the stormy-weather, the Met Office has alerted the public that “significant disruption” is expected across much of the UK, and has warned of a “danger to life” from flying debris.

As of tomorrow, an amber warning for strong wind is also in place for most of England.

The Met Office has warned people to expect some damage to buildings and homes, with roofs blown off with the possibility of power lines being brought down.

Roads, bridges and railway lines are likely to close, with delays and cancellations to bus, train, ferry services and flights

There is a good chance that power cuts, possibly prolonged, could occur and possibly affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

Large waves are likely and beach material is likely to be thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties

It is also likely there will be falling branches and some uprooted trees
