Tempest 24hr response 0845 052 4522

Storm Jocelyn is set to bring further strong winds and heavy rain to a large part of the UK – with disruption to transport and coastal communities likely.
Trees are down across the county, some roads have been reported as unpassable due to flooding and over 1,500 people are still without power.
Flood warnings and alerts are also in place.
The Met Office has issued two yellow severe weather warnings for rain and high winds from noon today into Wednesday.
It said: “Winds are widely expected to gust to 55-65mph, with a few exposed locations possibly seeing in excess of 70mph.
“Gusts of 55-65mph are fairly typical for a winter storm across the areas with warnings, but following the impacts caused by Storm Isha resilience is expected to be lower and it may also hamper any ongoing recovery and repair efforts.”
Police have urged people to stay clear of coastal areas while the warning remains in place and stay away from the fells to keep themselves and mountain rescue volunteers safe.
If you and your home have suffered damage due to storm Jocelyn, contact Tempest Restoration today on 0845 052 4522 to see how we can help you or why not email us direct.

Cumbria is being hit by a second storm just days after Storm Isha battered the county. People are being advised by police not to drive unless absolutely necessary.
Heavy rain from consecutive storms, most recently Storm Henk, has left wide areas of the United Kingdom under water once again.
