Up to 500 UK flights cancelled
The UK is experiencing one of the worst storms in over 30 years. Wind gusts up to 122mph have been reported as the government advises people to stay in their homes and keep safe. The Met Office has issued a Red Weather Warning, the highest level of danger, in the south of England, in areas such as London and Plymouth.
Travelers at risk
Despite warnings and safety measures placed in advance, planes are still struggling to land. There have been no incidents as of yet, but several viewers are watching online as planes land on the ground at Heathrow with great difficulty.
The circumstances have made it impossible for some flights to happen at all. British Airways and easyJet have cancelled over 200 flights, with up to 500 cancellations from all airlines combined.
Although public transport has not stopped, people are being urged to avoid traveling unless absolutely necessary and have extreme caution if they choose to go outside.
The storm is expected to end after 6pm GMT.
