Agree with you cookie.

It's an ABSOLUTE JOKE that no warning (on here) has been issued for Hebrides.

Let's have a look at todays earlier Hebrides shipping forecast:

Southwesterly gale force 8 imminent increasing violent storm force 11 soon

Of course, the usual culprits will come out saying "it's only Hebrides, where population is low". That is bull. It has a population, and as we all know in 2005, five people were killed due to adverse weather.

The least we should have seen was an advisory.

I hate the acryonm NIMBY - but that is exactly what has happened here. Nobody cares :D
