Thousands of people are still without power and about 1,200 homes in south-east and south-west England are still submerged in flood. However, the Met Office has issued more storms forecast. The office said that another storm is expected to hit the UK this weekend. Gusts of up to 80mph are expected in some coastal areas and on high ground.
Forecaster Helen Roberts said that it would get “increasingly windy overnight” with severe gales likely on the west coast. She added that the new storm will "almost certainly will have some impact" on people's plans and it would “exacerbate problems” in the South and South East.
Meanwhile, BBC Weather said that the new storm is expected to cause disruption particularly on places where the ground is already saturated and in areas where high winds were combined with heavy rainfall. On the other hand, the Environment Agency has warned of ongoing disruption on the River Medway and the Kentish Stour around the Ashford and Canterbury. It added that flooding across the Somerset Levels, River Severn, River Thames and River Ouse in Cambridgeshire and rivers across Essex is expected.
