The South of the UK is soon to be attacked by what is expected to be our worst storm for several years. Winds gusting at over 80mph and torrential rain are expected. The trees still have most of their leaves so will offer a lot of resistance to the wind - I imagine many trees will be uprooted, as they were in the Hurricane of 1987.
I live out in the countryside and expect that we will suffer a power loss and a lot of local damage.
The latest forecast says that the winds will hit us at around 22:00.
I’ve cleared our gutters out and made sure there is nothing that can blow away
I’m feeling quite nervous…
