More Storm Chaos as Imogen Hits the UK

Storm Imogen is making its presence felt across the UK, with record winds and over 50 flood warnings and another 178 flood alerts in place.

Unlike the storms over Christmas and into early January, the South East, South West, Wales and the Midlands are feeling the brunt of Imogen, with winds of up to 96 mph recorded at The Needles off the Isle of Wight. The Isles of Scilly has seen winds of 78mph, with 74mph recorded in Mumbles, near Swansea.

The Met Office has issued an amber “be prepared’ wind warning for Wales, South West England, London and South East England. Coastal areas could see giant waves and localised flooding. Around western coasts, the sea state could reach “phenomenal,” the highest level on the World Meteorological Scale, with waves of more than 14m forecast.

In Wales, flooding is affecting trains, and around 13,000 homes are without power throughout Wales and the South West.

Adler & Allan continues to support businesses around the UK as they prepare for and respond to flooding. Operations Director Andrew Clark said, “We’re continuing to help businesses hit by Storms Desmond, Eva, Frank, Gertrude, Henry and Jonas to get back to work, and whilst the immediate threat seems to be the strength of the winds, our depots across the UK remain on standby for emergency flood response.”
