The storm formerly known as Hurricane Helene is set to hit the UK early next week, with the worst damage from these storms coming down on Monday and Tuesday, of which shall probably die out by Wednesday, according to the Met Office.
However, they have warned that such a storm is a ‘danger to life’ mainly through how the high winds shall lead to strong winds, leading to the Met Office issuing a yellow alert over the storm. It is a part of several tropical storms, including Hurricane Florence, of which has already led to evacuations in area like Virginia and the two Carolina states in the United States of America, according to the Daily Express.
From this, various bridges, airports and ferry services are expected to be shut in the worst affected areas (of which includes Ireland) too.
According to Surrey Live, the hurricane is a Category 2 type, of which is expected to reach Category 3 before dying down on Wednesday.
On the storm and the damage it may bring, Met Office meteorologist Emma Smith elaborated:
Helene is moving up from the Atlantic towards us. Hurricane Joyce is also in the Atlantic so we need to see how those two systems are going to move around each other because that could have an impact. It looks like Helene will move towards Ireland on Tuesday morning. It’s possible that the west coast of Wales and Cornwall could get some winds as well, but we will get a clearer picture of what to expect very soon.
So you are warned about such weather over the next week.
