Storms and strong wind

Prepare for stormy weather

  • Keep up to date with weather forecasts
  • Keep vehicles clear of buildings, trees, walls and fences.
  • If chimney stacks are tall and in poor condition, move beds away from areas directly below them.
  • Remove dead tree branches so they don’t cause damage in a storm.

During a storm

  • Only make essential journeys. If you have to make a journey, be aware of strong side winds on exposed routes such as bridges, coastal routes or high open roads.
  • For more information on what to do during thunder and lightning visit the Met Office Website

After a storm

  • Be careful not to touch any electrical or telephone cables that have been blown down or are still hanging.
  • Contact your insurer to report any damage to your property.
