Winds gusting up to 114 miles per hour were measured in the Scottish Highlands, and many roads and bridges were closed. A number of flights serving Scotland were also canceled.

 
Much of northwestern Europe braced for a storm that was expected to bring flooding to coastal areas and interrupt transport services. Glasgow’s central station was evacuated after debris damaged glass in the roof, though no one was hurt.

 
Britain’s Environment Agency said that the tidal surges could bring “significant” coastal flooding, and the Thames Barrier was closed to protect London. Ferry operators canceled services to some of Germany’s North Sea islands and the country’s national railway, Deutsche Bahn, warned of probable disruption across a swathe of northern Germany.
