Southend: Severe Weather Warning

Windy Weather IconNote that an Amber Severe Weather Warning has been issued for London and the South East for this coming Monday, the 28th of October 2013

The Echo newspaper is warning Southenders to be prepared for Essex to be hit by 80mph winds, in the worst storms since the 1987 hurricane that crippled much of the county.

The Met Office has issued an Amber Severe Weather Warning, which means “be prepared”. Winds are expected to start building on Sunday, the the brunt of the storm due to hit on Monday morning’s rush hour.

It’s expected that we won’t know until Sunday whether the storm will hit Essex hard, but it pays to be prepared for possible disruption.

Here’s today’s quote from the Met Office:

“There is some continuing uncertainty in the timing, intensity and track of the low.

However, the public should be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures, bringing disruption to transport and power supplies.”
