Storm Eleanor: Travel disruption and homes without power

Storm Eleanor: Travel disruption and homes without power

03 January 2018

The Met Office recorded gusts reaching 100mph (161km/h) overnight with a yellow warning still in place for Wales, England, most of Northern Ireland and parts of southern Scotland.

About 3,000 homes across Northern Ireland are without power, although electricity has been restored to 20,000 properties, while there are more than one thousand homes without power in England and about 300 in Wales.

Around 78,000 homes have been affected in the UK and Ireland and over 100 flood warnings have been issued in the last 24 hours.

The Met Office's yellow warning for severe weather is in force until 18:00 GMT. There are blustery showers throughout the morning, some of them heavy with hail and thunder. But forecasters say the rain and winds will ease as the day progresses and Storm Eleanor makes its way across the Channel.

The Environment Agency says the combination of strong winds and high tides could cause some coastal flooding in the UK.
