Thousands are still without power in the UK following a violent storm that killed at least two people, the BBC News said on Wednesday.
The storm, which unleashed winds of 100 mph, felled trees, overturned trucks and damaged buildings as it swept over the British Archipelago Monday night and Tuesday.
Some of the most serious impact was felt across Northern Ireland and the southern half of Scotland. Wind gusts reached 100 mph in Edinburgh, Scotland, and 105 mph at Malin Head, in the Irish Republic, the UK Met Office said Tuesday.
Toppled trees caused many disruptions on roadways. One of the deaths resulted from a fallen tree that struck a van in southern England.
Not only roads, but rail and ferry traffic was adversely impacted by the severe weather.
This weather event was preceded by two violent, damaging storms that struck the UK in December.
