Storm Eunice falls on London; first-ever lethal alert issued

London: Storm Eunice blew Britain with record-breaking winds on Friday and disrupted flights, trains, ferries etc., in London while leaving the streets empty, Agence France-Presse reported.

London city was under the "red weather" or "danger to life" warning, which was the first-ever. Winds of 196 kph were recorded in the Isle of Wight of Southern England and were reported as the fastest ever recorded. The weather department is predicting heavy snow in Scotland and northern England.

The Eunice formed a "sting jet", the weather department said, a rare phenomenon that acted in the Great storm of Britain in 1987.

The warning was also made across southern England and South wales. In these areas, transport was deeply affected while schools were closed. Warnings have also been issued in Belgium, Denmark and Sweden.

The storm has destroyed the power supply to 80,000 homes and businesses in Ireland, as well as more than 5,000 in Cornwall and Devon in southwest England. On the coasts, large waves went past sea walls.

British Prime Minister Borris Johnson advised on Twitter that precautions must be followed to be safe. People in the city must have heeded the warning and safety precautions as streets were found empty.

On Wednesday, Britain had witnessed another storm called Dudley, It had disrupted transport and caused power outages, but there wasn't much damage reported.

However, the storms are not necessarily out of climate change, experts opined. But as the human-caused climate changes continue to heat the planet, conditions could get worse when the sudden and rare explosive storms happen, they added.
