Storm Ciaran

Storm Ciaran

As you are no doubt aware, we are facing a period of severe weather overnight tonight and through tomorrow morning as Storm Ciaran moves across the UK.

According to the latest Met Office forecast, South West England, and especially Cornwall are facing the brunt of the storm, with an amber warning for strong winds and a yellow warning for heavy rain already issued. The storm warnings can be found here: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/uk-warnings#?date=2023-11-01

With the ground already saturated from recent heavy rain, we are expecting significant surface water, causing difficult driving conditions, and potential flooding.

However, the area of most concern is the period of heavy winds we are expecting in the early hours of tomorrow morning through to mid-morning, with gusts of up to 85mph expected in exposed locations.

With trees in leaf still, there is the potential for fallen branches, alongside damage to properties.

Cornwall Council’s advice to residents is to only travel if absolutely essential. Further information on disruption to services will be issued as it becomes available. Please monitor the Cornwall Council’s social media channels when possible.
