(Worthy News) - Storm Brian is expected to batter Britain's coast just days after Storm Ophelia wreaked destruction. Heavy rain and gusts of 50mph are expected across southern England and the west of Wales on Saturday, and winds could reach 70mph in exposed areas.

The wild weather, caused by a "weather bomb" over the Atlantic Ocean, may cause coastal flooding and affect transport, the Met Office said.

Spokesman Grahame Madge said: "Dramatic waves could pose a threat to life and there will be quite hazardous conditions along the seafront." [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More...) ]
