#UK : ” Worst `Floods in Twenty Years’ leave `Thousands without Power’ across South West”

#AceWeatherNews `UK Storm’s Worst Flood’s in 20 Year’s Leave Thousands without Power’

Weather Alerts in South EastHeavy rain and winds have battered Britain, leaving thousands of homes without power in Wales and the south-west of England.

Electricity companies said Wednesday some 44,000 homes were experiencing intermittent power with another 5,000 homes being cut off from main power.

Britain’s Environment Agency has so far issued six severe flood warnings along the south coast in Cornwall and Dorset, meaning conditions represented a danger to life.

On the Isles of Scilly, there were reports of winds as strong as 146 kilometres per hour (91 miles per hour).

In the south-western county Devon, a section of the sea wall in the town Dawlish collapsed and left the main railway line suspended in mid-air.

The bad weather also caused disruptions to rail and air travel, with cancellations across much of the south.

This was the latest of the bad weather that has battered Britain since last December.

One of the worst affected areas is Somerset Levels in south-west England where thousands of hectares (acres) have been under water for more than a month.

Several villages in the Somerset Levels have been cut off and are only accessible by boat, as the area is experiencing the worst floods in 20 years.

Experts say the main reason for the wet weather is a predominance of west and south-west winds, bringing in mild air from the Atlantic.
