LONDON – The UK is experiencing a second weekend of severe weather disruption, as experts warn Storm Dennis could inflict more damage than the recent Storm Ciara.
Severe weather warnings are in place for most of the UK – forecasters say a month’s worth of rain could fall in some places. Wind gusts of up to 70mph (113kmph) are expected.
So strong are the winds that even wholesale gas prices fell early on Friday in the UK as the storm was forecast to bring winds strong enough to boost output from the country’s many wind farms.
In Sligo, Ireland the winds were severe enough that a waterfall called The Devil’s Chimney was actually blown back on itself.
There have been 100s of flight cancellations, train delays and flooding throughout the UK. Emergency crews and a rescue helicopter was scrambled to Herne Bay, Kent, to try to save a daredevil teen who got into difficulty in the sea and died.
