Storm Eunice: London UK Winds Up To Nearly 200 Kmph, 9 People Killed


In Europe, the danger of Eunice ( UK Storm Eunice ) is increasing rapidly. Winds continued to blow at a speed of 122 mph on Friday. Due to this, at least nine people died in London. Thousands of houses lost power, and the roofs of the houses were blown away.

Britain’s Meteorological Office said Hurricane Eunice originated in the mid-Atlantic and quickly moved towards Europe. It has put people’s lives in danger. Western England also came under the grip of the storm. It made landfall in Cornwall, where the ocean waves rose very high.

A woman died in London. She was travelling in her car, on which a tree fell. While a man died in Liverpool due to flying garbage in the air. Another person died in the hemisphere. His vehicle collided with a tree lying on the ground.


Apart from Britain, the storm’s havoc is also seen in the Netherlands. Four people died due to the falling of trees here. In Belgium, too, the roofs of houses were blown away due to strong winds. A British man died after the boat capsized in the water.

One lakh people living without electricity

A man has lost his life in Ireland after getting stuck in a tree lying on the ground while clearing the storm’s garbage. Strong winds caused a lot of damage at London’s O2 Arena. In Wales, the waves of the sea started rising very high. About 100,000 people were forced to live without electricity.

The news of the uprooting of trees came from here too. A red alert has been issued in London. “We issue a weather-related red alert only when we think there is a threat to people’s lives due to the weather,” said a France Meteorological Department official here.


Flights and trains cancelled.

The Meteorological Department said the Needles on the Isle of Wight recorded 122 mph (196 kph), the most robust wind speed registered in England. Wind gusts at some British airports have caused problems for planes to take off. Due to this, the pilots also faced difficulties in landing.

Over 200,000 people watched a live stream of Heathrow Airport’s runway online. A total of 436 flights have been cancelled in Britain amid record-high winds due to Hurricane Younis, according to Sirium data. Trains have also been cancelled.
