FreeThinker Posted October 28, 2013 Report Share Posted October 28, 2013 A severe storm with hurricane force winds and torrential rain is to hit southern Britain within a few hours. It is the worst storm to hit the area in decades and will disrupt air, rail, and highway transport in and out of London and may fell millions of trees. The last such storm, in 1987, killed 18 and felled 15 million trees. It has been dubbed the St. Jude Storm, after the patron saint of lost causes, whose feast day is celebrated on Monday. Let's hope this isn't a lost cause! Let us all wish our British friends the best of luck during this emergency. Our thoughts are with you! http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/27/21196097-hurricane-force-st-jude-storm-to-hit-britain-at-rush-hour-forecasters-warn?lite http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24690552 Quote Link to comment
