The UK and Ireland were hit by Storm Isha, which hit large parts of both countries with strong winds and rain.
Millions of travelers by rail, sea and air will see their journeys disrupted. The worst affected airports are Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Bristol. In Scotland, the Irish Sea and the English Channel, many ferry crossings have been canceled. On the airport side, British Airways has canceled flights to and from Heathrow.
In Ireland, 102 flights to and from Dublin Airport were canceled this Sunday.
The Met Office, the UK’s national weather service, has extended its weather warning for strong winds to almost the entire country, with a ‘life-threatening’ alert linked to large waves, flying debris and washed-up materials blown ashore by the wind on coastal roads and seafronts.
Two ‘amber’ level warnings will be in force between today and tomorrow morning: one extends to central, eastern and western England and the whole of Wales, leaving aside only London and parts of the south-east; the other covers all of Scotland, the north of England and Northern Ireland.
Storm Isha, the ninth since September, arrived with winds exceeding 100 km/h, causing power outages, while airports and train and bus services could face delays and cancellations.
