It will bring severe flood warnings in the Severn and Wye estuaries.
The Environment Agency warns coastal communities in Wales and southwest England to prepare for floods. The incoming Storm will bring high winds, large waves, and flooding. It will also coincide with high spring tides, so the threat of flooding is high. There is a flood warning for parts of the Severn Estuary and the River Wye in Gloucestershire, so it is essential to take extra precautions near the rivers.
There are 19 flood warnings in place for the area as Storm Eunice approaches the UK on Friday. In addition, there are amber and yellow wind warnings across central and southern England. Further signs are in place for the UK as a whole on Saturday.
Storm Franklin, meanwhile, has already hit the UK, putting pressure on the soil’s ability to absorb water. It has caused flooding in Scotland, and trees have fallen across England. It has also caused high waves to crash against lighthouses and seafronts. In addition, the Storm has brought snow to some areas of Scotland. As of February 21, the UK had 185 flood warnings, including two severe ones.
Coastal flooding in the Severn and Wye estuaries is also expected, with strong winds affecting the rivers. Several hundred flood warnings have been issued throughout the UK, but the worst areas were in the west of the UK due to the high rainfall. Ayr University Hospital in Scotland suffered significant flooding, as did Glasgow and Shropshire. Meanwhile, flood defenses have protected 40,000 homes and businesses from flooding.
The Met Office has also issued red weather warnings in Wales and Dudley. It has been said that gusts could reach 95mph along the coastline and 80mph inland.
