Met Office issues yellow weather warning and warns of 'danger to life' from Storm Helene

This weekend looks to be a wild and windy one.

While this summer has been a particularly hot one, it seems like the wet weather is going to be just as strong.

While Storm Helene has been warned of being "very disturbed", the upcoming hurricane has been classed as a danger to life by the UK Met Office.

The status yellow weather warning from the Met Office has been issued for 6pm on Monday September 17 and  will last until Tuesday September 18 at 12pm.

According to the Met Office, "Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible. Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible."

Roads and bridges may need to close, and fallen trees may be a hazard.

The office also said: "There is a small chance that injuries could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts."

"There is a chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage," they added.
