The British Meteorological Agency issued a red alert this Thursday, driven by Hurricane Eunice approaching British territory, which is already blowing at 160km / h and could be “life-threatening”.
The Meteorological Agency of Ireland has issued a storm warning, citing “strong winds” and the possibility of flooding along the coast. Another storm, named Dudley, hit Britain on Wednesday, disrupting traffic, but the damage was not widespread.
The British government announced on Thursday that it was holding a meeting of its emergency committee “COBR” to discuss its response to the two storms. The meteorological office warned that roofs, trees could be uprooted and power lines would fall when Eunice reached Hurricane Territory in the hope that it would withstand the effects of southwest weather events in the UK.
Some roads, bridges and railroads may be closed, causing bus and train and ferry services and some flights to be delayed and canceled.
The red alert, which is issued when a dangerous weather event is expected, is in effect in Cornwall County, the southwest coast of the UK and South Wales.
Some railway users have already been advised by train operators not to travel this Friday.
