PRN: Severe Weather Storms Cause Havoc Across Britain
Severe Weather Storms Cause Havoc Across Britain
LONDON, January 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Recent storms that have reached up to 100mph have caused severe disruption across the UK with many properties being damaged and people being hurt.
The gale force winds have left tens of thousands of people without power in Scotland and parts of England and Northern Ireland; as well as roads being closed and havoc on railway tracks from fallen trees.
As the fierce storm rages across Britain and causes severe roof tile damage on many homes, local roofing contractors are being called on to minimise the destruction. The Met Office has issued stark weather warnings and the Environment Agency has also issued flood alerts across the country.
Several accidents across varied regions indicate the extent of the destruction. One motorist was killed when a tree collapsed on his van in Kent, a sailor died after his vessel was hit by a large wave in the English Channel; and a woman and a 10-year-old boy were injured after a tree crashed on to their car in Hertfordshire.
Furthermore, a bus driver has suffered serious injuries when a tree fell on his bus in Surrey and a family of four in North-East London were trapped in their home when a tree fell in the driveway resulting in fire-fighters removing branches and freeing them with handsaws.
The high winds are damaging thousands of power lines leaving homeowners without electricity. And people across the UK will be looking for emergency roof tiles repair as loose slates are flown off roofs.
