Event

Storm Diana should impact Wales, Scotland, western England, and Northern Ireland, on Wednesday, November 28. The Met office has issued yellow alerts for strong winds and heavy rain for these regions, which are expected to remain in effect until November 29.

Associated transportation disruptions and power outages due to potential flooding and infrastructural damage are expected. Flight delays and cancelations and disruptions to train schedules have already been reported in London as of November 27.

Advice

Individuals present in the UK are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation and power disruptions, reconfirm flights, obeyany instructions issued by the local authorities, and avoid flood-prone areas until the situation stabilizes. Remember that driving or walking through running water can be dangerous - 15 cm (6 in) of running water is enough to knock over an adult.
