Storm Barra’s Chaos After Arwen
The UK was hit by strong winds and heavy rain overnight as Cyclone Barra swept in from the west, toppling trees and leaving some areas without power.
Counties in the south-west of England and Wales remain under a yellow weather warning until 6pm on Wednesday, meaning residents face traffic delays and the risk of power outages.
Bryngwyn Comprehensive School in Llanelli, Wales, was forced to close temporarily after gusts of more than 70 mph tore off part of the school’s roof on Tuesday night.
The school said no one was injured as most people had left the facility, although Dyfed-Powys Police were called to the scene to deal with debris that had fallen onto a nearby road.
Wind speeds of 86 mph were recorded in Aberdaron, Gwynedd, just a week after gusts of 81 mph were recorded in Aberporth, Ceredigion, during Hurricane Arwen.
Coastal communities have been warned to be careful walking near jetties and harbours, with big waves crashing into seaside towns in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall.
