Storm Caroline blasts UK with gales of up to 90mph. The Met Office has issued a yellow alert which has warned the locals of a danger to life conditions.
Scotland was the first to be hit with strong gusts and a heavy snowfall. Strong winds are expected to lead to flying debris. Northern Ireland is also to be battered with winds up to 70mph. The amber warnings on Thursday
were issued for the Western Isles, the Northern Isles and most of mainland Scotland.
Since Thursday morning strengthening gusts first forced to cancel train services in the north and west of Scotland. Drivers also have been warned of potential disruptions.
Meteorologists claim that the strong winds could damage buildings and cause a short-term power loss. Road, air and ferry services may also be affected. Storm will also bring large waves and spray to the coastal areas threatening all of those living by the coastline.
Storm Caroline is expected to bring cool air, string gusts and heavy snow across all of UK. Some oil rigs from a North Sea have started to evacuate its workers.
“Every year storms and other weather conditions disrupt up to 30% of European flights. Bad weather and technical issues in EU law are referred as “extraordinary circumstances” which exempt carriers from liability to
air passenger rights and disrupted flight compensations. However airlines are known to manipulate the causes and hide the real reasons behind the unexpected shortcomings like weather or operational issues. For this
reason, we suggest travellers to always check the real reasons behind their flight disruptions despite what the carrier has to say, ” comments Marius Stonkus, the CEO of flight compensation company SKYCOP.
