Just two brief power cuts here. But its pretty scarey listening to the high winds and waiting for something to come flying off the house.

Wouldn't like to be those men in that liferaft off the Lizard or the RNLI going out to rescue them.

Here's a still picture of Southsea sea front near the Aquarium, taken around mid-day today.
Sorry about the quality we could barely stand upright and the camera was erm, buffeted to say the least.

I have a video too but am still trying to work out how to show it

Its really bad up here in the city.

I'm sitting in a building in Bishopsgate next to Liverpool Street Station over looking a large section of road that has been closed off.

A section of a building next to the station has been wobbling all ove the place most of the day and the Police shut it all off.

I spent nearly an hour working with them earlier to make sure enough road was shut off and we finally had to shut the main entrance to the station too.

Wind speeds on the roof of this building peaked at 82 mph at 15:45 this afternoon and we nearly lost part of the roof.

Well in school today, a small window open for some fresh air, next minute massive gust slams the door, pulls it straight through the frame and have to be 'crow-bared' out the classroom, followed by an announcement that we weren't allowed to leave as our brand new £2 million sports hall has just lost its roof and its flying over the school and grounds.

Most exciting day at school ever had, pictures tomorrow was let out half hour late.

It's amazing how many of the buildings having trouble are the new ones - then again seeing the way they are now building them.....

Your not the only one. I work at a school where all students were only let out two outside doors due to the roofing problems.
