Storm Eunice disruption

News – 17 February 2022

The Met Office has warned that Storm Eunice could bring gusts of up to 90mph on Friday 18 February, which will likely cause significant disruption.

While some areas in the south-west of England have been issued a rare red weather warning – the highest level – our region has been issued an amber warning.

Amber warnings mean:

  • There is a good chance that flying debris could result in a danger to life
  • Damage to buildings and homes is likely, with roofs blown off and power lines brought down
  • Roads, bridges and railway lines are likely to close, with delays and cancellations to bus, train, ferry services and flights
  • There is a good chance that power cuts, possibly prolonged, could occur, perhaps affecting other services, such as mobile phone coverage
  • It is likely there will be falling branches and some uprooted trees


How it will affect our services

Unfortunately, this will mean that some of our services, particularly repairs, will be affected on Friday, and we apologise for any disruption.

All external and roof works have already been suspended to ensure the safety of our colleagues.
