#StormArwen #Arwen #UKWeather

At least two people have been killed as Storm Arwen brought gusts of almost 100mph, causing road closures, train delays and power cuts across the UK.

Police said one victim, from Lancaster, was killed at around 11pm last night on Vicarage Road in Ambleside, Cumbria. In Northern Ireland, a man was killed when his car was hit by a falling tree in County Antrim on Friday.

More than 130,000 homes in the UK have been left without electricity as the country is battered by ferocious winds, rainfall and snow.

While the Met Office’s rare red weather warning expired early today, the forecaster said that amber and yellow warnings for wind remained in place, with the expectation of gusts of 70mph in many areas today and flooding along the North East coastline.

Police urged people to travel only if absolutely necessary today after roads were closed by fallen debris in the worst-hit parts of Scotland.

Coastguards even begged Storm Arwen sightseers this morning to stay away from the sea today and tomorrow, warning: ‘No selfie is worth killing yourself for’.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
