Winds of up to 80 miles per hour are expected today, as storm ‘Imogen’ batters East Devon, the MET office has warned.
An amber weather warning, which means people should be prepared, has been issued for the South West.
There are likely to be gusts of up to 80 miles per hour in coastal areas, and between 60 and 70 miles per hour in-land.
Some very large waves are likely to affect many of the region’s coasts, and the MET office is advising people to be prepared for disruption to travel as well as possible damage to trees and structures, and interruption of power supplies.
