Harrow Weather: Met Office issues warning as Storm Isha approaches

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for Harrow and various parts of the United Kingdom, anticipating severe weather conditions associated with Storm Isha, which is expected to impact the region on Sunday and Monday.

Strong winds are forecasted to bring potential disruptions to travel and utilities across several areas.

In the affected areas, including Harrow, residents and travellers should brace for several potential impacts due to severe weather conditions. These include building damage, such as roof tiles being dislodged, and the risk of injury or even life-threatening situations from flying debris. Power outages are a strong possibility, which could also disrupt mobile phone coverage.

Significant transport disruptions are expected, with possible road and bridge closures and delays or cancellations in road, rail, air, and ferry services, leading to extended travel times. To ensure safety, it is crucial to exercise caution during storms, adhere to safe driving practices in adverse weather, stay updated with the latest weather advisories, prepare an emergency kit, and keep mobile devices charged to cope with potential power cuts.
