Forecasters have issued an urgent “danger to life” weather warning as Storm Debi is set to disrupt the UK.

The storm has the potential to bring very strong and disruptive winds of up to 80mph in some areas, according to Met Office experts. An update by the Environment Agency for England also shows that there are now five flood warnings and 47 alerts.

The worst affected areas are likely to be the north of England, parts of Wales and Northern Ireland. The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning from 4am until 6pm tomorrow (November 13) for wind and rain covering northern England and parts of Wales on Monday.

Forecasts warn that injuries and danger to life debris are possible, adding that some damage to buildings, such as tiles blowing from roofs, could occur.

The Met Office claimed injuries and danger to life could also occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Power cuts are also a possibility. Experts say other services such as mobile phone converge could also be affected.

Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible. Some roads and bridges may close.

A spokesperson for the weather service said: “Storm Debi is expected to develop and move across Ireland and northern England on Monday. Whilst there is still some uncertainty in the exact track and depth of this low, there is a chance of very strong westerly winds developing along the Irish Sea coasts of Wales and northwest England on Monday morning before extending inland during the day, slowly easing later.

“There is a chance of 60-65 mph gusts developing inland and 70-80 mph around coasts, and over some higher ground, such as the Pennines.”
