Storm Eleanor has battered the UK in the last 24 hours - Educogym Canary Wharf discuss the damage
Storm Eleanor battered the UK with gusts of up to 100mph today causing damage to many according to Educogym Canary Wharf.
Road closures, delays and several major bridges were closed due to fallen debris and high winds across the UK, some residents where asked to leave their homes during high tide due to a collapsed stone harbour wall in Portreath. Sadly, as the storm moved into France, it killed a skier with another fallen tree. "It is very sad and scary to hear that so many were injured and even killed, unfortunately I am not surprised at all, as the winds were some of the strongest I've seen, our colleagues balcony furniture was almost blown off the side and her door damaged from the winds, probably one of many flats battered by the string winds"said Orlstyne Wilson, senior personal trainer at Educogym Canary Wharf.
To top it off, 25,000 homes were left without power, most of which have now been restored, flights to and from the UK have been affected, and sadly, a body was found of the coast of East Sussex however it is not yet known if this was related to Storm Eleanor.
