Storm Dennis which now batters the coasts of Ireland and the UK exploded into a bomb cyclone on Thursday, after its central pressure dropped 46mb in 24 hours.
Now Dennis is set to drop to 922mb by Saturday evening – one of the lowest ever recorded on the North Atlantic.
The central pressure is located just south of Iceland.
The lowest pressure recorded in the Atlantic is 914mb, on the 11th of January 1993.
Iceland holds the previous record for the lowest land air pressure in Europe. In 1929, Stórhöfði peninsula recorded 920 hpa (mb).
The lowest for the UK is 925 hpa (mb), recorded in Scotland 1884.
According to Accuweather, the storm has the potential to be one of the strongest ever observed over the North Atlantic. The five most powerful storms all recorded a pressure of 925.25mb or below.
Storm Dennis, which comes right after storm Ciara is forecasted to bring even worse flooding. Because of high water levels in the ground already, storm Dennis will add to this even more heavy rain, with a month’s worth of rainfall in one day.
Now the Army has been deployed to help with flood relief.
Several roads have also closed due to flooding, mostly in Northern England, in Cumbria and Yorkshire.
At 16:50 local time, parts of the M9 near Stirling in Scotland closed.
