The British newspaper, The Independent, highlighted a series of severe storms that hit the UK this week, emphasizing that the last of these storms was Franklin, which hit the UK with strong winds and flooding.
The worst situation has not yet passed as storm winds and heavy snow are expected in some parts of the UK where hundreds of homes have been submerged after three storms hit across the kingdom in four days.
There are current weather forecasts for wind and snow across northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland – while two rare severe flood warnings have been issued for the western Midlands.
He noted that while the UK is still recovering from the effects of three hurricanes, Dudley, Eunice and Franklin, the latest severe weather could be called Hurricane Claudy.
The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for strong winds in parts of northeastern England, Cumbria, North Yorkshire and parts of Scotland from 6am to 3pm on Thursday.
A second yellow wind and snow warning will cover most parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Wednesday evening until 3pm on Thursday, with possible snowfall of 10cms at low levels and up to 70 mph on the coast.
The newspaper stressed that meteorologists’ fears that storms and floods were a feature of Britain’s weather were false.
Meteorologists said heavy snowfall was expected, with the possibility of strong hurricane force winds and frequent thunderstorms in some places.
Meanwhile, the Environment Agency is urging communities in some parts of the West Midlands and Yorkshire, especially those in the Severn and Oz rivers, to prepare for major flooding from Hurricane Franklin.
