The STORM Aurore is set to bring in 2 inches of rain and 70 mph of strong winds after what looks like a tornado hit Britain.
The storm hits southern England, causing a barrage of wind and rain.
It happens after a strong wind hits a tree against the ground and destroys a brick wall.
Shocking footage reveals traces of destruction in Widnes, Cheshire, after being destroyed by a 30-second twister with roof tiles, garden furniture, and Willy Bins scattered throughout a residential area.
A gust of up to 70 mph is expected tonight in the Channel Islands, as yellow weather warnings for heavy rains in southern England are issued until 3 am Thursday.
Meteo France said Storm Aurore was responsible for the heavy rain and strong winds that hit Britain.
Becky Mitchell, a forecaster for the Met Office, said:
“Most of the areas covered by the warning continue to have heavy rains of 15-25 mm, but in some places they can reach 30 mm or more and thunder.
“Also, very strong winds can blow, usually reaching about 45 mph on the coast and 70 mph on the Channel Islands.
“This can cause confusion for commuters tomorrow morning. Floods can occur in some places, but lightning can cause power outages.”
In parts of the UK, it can rain up to 2 inches in the next 48 hours.
According to the Met Office, there will be heavy rains, thunderstorms and “very gusts” this morning.
“Heavy and thunderstorm zones are currently moving across southwest England, Wales and Midlands,” the forecaster said.
“Rain is accompanied by gusts, which makes driving conditions difficult in some places.
“Floods, lightning strikes, hail, and strong winds can damage some buildings, and it is unlikely that homes and businesses will soon be flooded.
“Sprays and sudden floods can lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.”
In one place, the wind that hit England broke the window.
Simon King, a BBC weatherman and meteorologist, said on Twitter: “Looking at the damage, a tornado may have occurred in Widnes this afternoon …”
One resident said he saw a trampoline flying 150 feet, but the car window seems to have been broken by a pillar in someone’s garden.
There was one video showing a tree torn from the ground and a huge uprooted trunk lying in someone’s front yard, and the windows of the house were shattered by the force of the wind.
Locals Claire Ernshaw shared footage of the genocide and described the scene as “total devastation.”
David Nebitto added: “I personally feel really lucky. My family and home are okay.
“There is a terrible hit area nearby and the damage will be devastating. Bad weather is rare.”
I personally feel really lucky, my family and home are ok. There is a terrible hit area nearby.
Dom Smith Liverpool echo: “It was clearly driving in the back lane and the next minute bin began to fly in the sky, the tree went.
“It returned to normal within about 20-30 seconds.”
Dom’s son, Elliott, added, “I came out of nowhere and then left. I came and disappeared.”
According to Lynn Fraser, the tornado sounded like “the engine of the plane is spinning.”
“The next moment I heard a crash or something broken. I thought the house or bomb had blown up,” she said.
A spokesman for the Met Office told Sun Online that Widnes weather conditions meant that a tornado “may occur” around noon.
“Tornadoes are not uncommon in the UK and occur about 35 times a year on average, but the number can vary significantly from year to year.”
An elderly woman was hospitalized Wednesday afternoon after being attacked by a fence blown by a strong wind in Heath, Cardiff.
And as heavy rains struck many parts of England this morning, horrifying drivers had to be rescued from cars trapped in a surge of floods.
Fowey’s fire brigade in Cornwall overcame the flood and arrived at the car after 7 am.
Cornwall Fire and Rescue tweeted:
“The driver was not injured, but had to be helped by the car due to the depth of the water and the position of the car.”
Many areas were hit by storms, and lightning and lightning contributed to the turmoil.
There are 4 flood alerts and 16 flood alerts in the UK and 2 and 8 alerts in Wales.
In Devon, flood warnings have been issued on the Avon River in South Brent, Avonwick and Abton Gifford.
This morning, from Junction 30 to Junction 31 in Exeter, the M5 southbound driveway was piled up and blocked.
And the A38 was blocked by another accident near the Exeter Racecourse.
Many river water levels are rising rapidly. The Environment Agency has issued several flood warnings, including those for residents living near Fromm in Maiden Newton, Dorset.
Strong winds blew along with the storm, hitting power sources in many areas.
This morning, more than 375 homes lost electricity in Midsomer Norton, Somerset, and about 80 homes went out of power in Mercertideville, South Wales.
Police warn drivers to slow down as many roads are flooded.
SNOW’S A GO
in the meantime It is expected to snow tomorrow -And it can stay chilly until the end of the month.
The country’s first snow gust is scheduled for Thursday, but thankfully for many of us, we are unaffected by the headaches that snowfall can cause.
Annie Shuttleworth, a forecaster for the Met Office, said:
“But this is limited to the Scottish Highlands. For most of us, it will rain before that.”
The cold waves are tilted to last until Halloween, with hail and rain blowing into the cold of the Arctic.
According to the Met Office’s long-term weather forecast, temperatures are likely to drop next week.
