Wind News

It feels a little bit like the Day of Doom here at St Mary’s this morning what with the weather. I’m going to proceed on the basis that it isn’t but here are some of the things I’ve been hearing via twitter and social media in the last half hour or so.

  • Level crossing destroyed near Carstairs
  • There are people on trains that are going no-where.
  • Plane arrived at Glasgow airport from Canada (ie through the wind) only for a delay in getting them off because they couldn’t connect the bridge to the aircraft.
  • Airports now closed.
  • Glass falling from ceiling at Central Station in Glasgow – everyone evacuated.
  • No trains running
  • Red alert for roads – ie don’t drive and pull over if you are in a high sided vehicle
