Europe preparing for more storms after Ciara battering – Up to 140mm rain

Follow us on social media!

Just days after storm Ciara, a new super-storm is on its way to batter Europe again.

The storm, named Dennis, is expected to hit Ireland and the UK on Saturday, bringing torrential rain and high wind speeds across the countries.

Some of the worst areas could see up to 140mm rain and gusts of over 130 km/h, along the west coast of Ireland and the Atlantic coast.

The storm comes right after the huge storm Ciara, which was one of the worst storms to hit Europe for many years.

Storm Ciara killed at least 7 people, caused nearly 1.000.000 power cuts and widespread travel disruption throughout Europe.

Three was killed in Poland, one in Sweden, one in Germany, one in Slovenia and one in the UK. It was also reported a death in Lombardy in Italy, not far from Milan.

Due to extreme rainfalls during Ciara, many towns and villages flooded in the UK, especially in Northern England. The river Ouse in York for example was 4.3 meters higher than average. It was issued over 186 flooding alerts, 251 flood warnings and 1 severe flood warning in the UK.

Because of high water levels already in the ground, UK is set for worse flooding after Storm Dennis.

During storm Ciara, a British Airways Boeing 747-400 broke the world record for the fastest subsonic flight between John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and London Heathrow.

The journey was completed in just 4 hours and 56 minutes, breaking the old record of 5 hours and 13 minutes, set in January 2018.

During the flight, the aircraft hit a maximum speed of 1328 km/h, and arrived 78 minutes before expected arrival time.

It’s warned that ships in the Atlantic could be in danger, as waves reach up to 30 meters during Storm Dennis.

After Storm Dennis, yet another storm is expected to batter the European coasts around the end of next week. The storm will be named “Ellen”.
