If you are in living in Britain, watch out for the incoming Storm Eva that is poised to wreak havoc on parts of the nation. Even though some communities are still trying to recuperate from the damages of Storm Desmond amounting to hundreds of millions of Euros, the government wants everyone to be ready for another downpour. Several areas have received yellow warnings to get ready, as even today there are rains across the country that could develop into thunderstorms. Keep safe, everyone!
According to the latest weather forecast, storm Eva could wreak havoc on Britain on December 24 as Christmas Eve approaches. Both Wales and North England have been told to prepare for more torrential rain that could amount to 80mm during a 30-hour period.
So far, 51 alerts given in England and Wales because the rains are posing severe danger to many communities. In total, there are 11 flood warnings.
Even as Storm Eva is about to approach Britain, people and communities are still trying their best to recover from the damage brought about by Storm Desmond. In total, the cost amounted to 500 million Euros.
The Met Office has warned that the storm could arrive by Thursday with winds going as fast as 70 mph especially on the northwestern region of Scotland.
In addition, The Met Office has announced a yellow warning for 30 hours in Lancashire, Manchester, Chesire, Cumbria, and Wales that should help families be aware of the incoming storm.
Storm Desmond has caused flood damage to as much as 5,200 homes in the North West in a span of two days from December 5 to December 6.
Even at this moment, it is expected that the communities would still be having scattered rain. Worse, weather analysts have said that the rains could develop into thunderstorms and hail.
The storm is still not officially named Eva, but the name would seem appropriate if it arrives by Christmas Eve.
Even today, some areas in the North West are still under recovery and reconstruction as the flooding and the overall rains have provided to be incredibly burdensome. This, for example, is near Glenridding Village in Cumbria.
As Storm Desmond has left parts of Britain in disarray and as Storm Eva is looming, workers have been trying their best to return everything back to normal to lessen the damages. Here, you can see Ullswater Steamers cleaning up the mess at Polley Bridge Pier, located in Cumbria.
