Expected Storms

15/02/2022

Be aware there are two big storms coming - Cumbria Local Resilience Forum partners are preparing for these, and you can help by getting prepared too. For example:

  • Avoid travelling during the windiest periods (tomorrow - Wednesday - lunchtime/evening/night, and then again on Friday) when conditions could be really poor, and there is a risk of trees falling.
  • Stay off the hills and off the water - it's not going to be any fun out there, and they'll be there to enjoy another day
  • Be prepared for a power cut (although fingers crossed there won't be any significant one) - check you've got batteries for torches and radios, some food that doesn't need cooking (you can never have too much chocolate in the house etc.
  • If you do experience issues like a loss of power or communications, please check on your neighbours and help them if necessary - the response within communities is essential, and almost always the quickest support that people will get - and Cumbria's really good at it!
