Powerful storm Bella wreaks Britain and northern France

Published on : Monday, December 28, 2020

Powerful storm Bella swept across Britain and into northern France, leaving thousands of households without power on Sunday.

Around 12,000 households in northern France are without electricity, with coastal regions of Brittany and Normandy worst affected, the news agency reported, citing the network operator Enedis.

The weather service Meteo France warned of strong gusts and high waves on the Atlantic coast, while the prefecture of the department of Manche on the English Channel urged caution because of the strong winds.

Earlier, Storm Bella hit large parts of the British Isles, with heavy rainfall and wind speeds of up to 112 kilometres per hour.

More than 100 flood warnings remained in place across the country on Sunday. The houses were flooded in parts of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire in eastern England.

Across south-eastern England, more than 1,300 people had earlier been advised to leave their homes over the Christmas period.

On the Isle of Wight in the English Channel, wind speeds of 170 kilometres per hour were measured overnight. The ongoing storm could cause rivers to rise further, experts warn.
