Storm Arwen hits UK and kills three


Nov 27, 2021

WEATHER – Since Friday evening, the UK has been hit by strong gusts from Storm Arwen. At least three people lost their lives.

Dramatic night in UK. At least three people have been killed during Storm Arwen, which has hit the country since Friday evening. Three separate dramas that took place in Northern Ireland, England and Scotland, according to local police and media.

According to BBC, one of the two victims was a principal of a local elementary school. He was killed by a fall from a tree on his vehicle.

Gusts up to 160 km / h

“These violent gales caused a lot of disturbance, from the south-west of England to the north of Scotland”, said Marco Petagna, forecaster of the Met Office, which has now lowered the alert level to orange or yellow depending on the region. Last night, the maximum level was triggered due to gusts of up to 160 km / h.

During the night, the entire north of the country was affected by bad weather. In Scotland, several rail lines were cut between Edinburgh, Glasgow and other major cities after a windswept barn landed on the tracks. Many Scottish roads are also closed due to debris on the tracks.

In England, 55,000 customers are deprived of electricity according to the energy supplier Northern Powergrid. At the same time, a hundred trucks are now “stuck in the snow” on a motorway according to the English traffic police.

“We have seen the worst and things will start to improve”, qualified Marco Petagna, even if the meteorological agency always advises to move only in case of absolute necessity, because it still provides “fairly strong snow and gusts.”

Vigilance is however always in order this Saturday afternoon as many videos posted on social networks show howling winds and raging seas across the country. “People should stay away from the coast, because the waves represent a danger to their life”, warns the Met office.
