    The wind is so strong in Exeter and quite sustained too, we must be getting near on 70mph, a couple trees at work are leaning over, huge trees, sign blew off from an electrical store as I was drying home and recycle bin has flown into the middle of the garden! I'm working if these are our peak winds here In Exeter?

    I'd suggest to anyone to our east to tighten down things now!

    This is stronger than the 23rd December storm we had here

    My anemometer is reading a rather calm 12mph, and has been for about an hour. Might be something to do with all the trees behind it Posted Image

    Is it inside the house ?

    Sounds intense! I think the winds are peaking now in your region, but i'm not 100% sure on that. It's getting really windy here near Southampton now, almost on par with any storm so far this winter

    Will the winds weaken as they move to southeast or stay the same?

    My neighbour has one of those 10' x 10' metal sheds in his garden, when he wakes up tomorrow, he'll realise he "had" one in the garden, someone else owns it now.

    This might sound dramatic but right now, this has to be the worst winds since the burns day storm, it's quite something!

    blowing a bit but nothing special here in Essex atm when is it meant to get going ?

    Give it another couple of hours to reach maximum gust levels. Biggest gusts/winds really reserved for the coastal areas though.

    Seemed to have a lull for about 1.5 hours. Lights have flickered again, and winds picking up again.

    Some of us could be in for quite a wild night

    Around midnight/early hours, I'm about as east as you can get, just starting to pick up a bit now, but expect it to get real tasty around midnight maybe later!

    Aha, nope, but it may as well be. Need to find a new location for it, I think.

    The tempo of the gusts has increased somewhat here too.

    The reason I say that it's that bad here is because everything has to be just right for best impact of winds, due to location etc etc..

    The criteria has been met now and from what I'm reading and seeing on Twitter, the flooding and damage is by far the worst this winter, and at least a decade.

     

    Stay safe.
