  • Storm Eleanor set to batter Britain

Most of the coast from Bracklesham to Shoreham is on alert, after strong winds and high tides threatened. Brighter in the afternoon with the severe winds abating.

Met Office forecaster, Paul Gundersen, said: "The unsettle theme continues throughout this week, with further spells of rain moving across the United Kingdom from the west as many return to work on Tuesday and there will again be some snow over the high ground in Scotland".

Part of an insurer's job will be to see whether the damage was the result of the storm or due to a lack of general upkeep, which became apparent because of the storm.

Elsewhere in the UK, Storm Eleanor unleashed violent winds of up to 100mph, leaving thousands of homes without power and hitting transport links.

A Status Orange wind warning is place for a number of counties, including Donegal.

Police in Dumfries and Galloway said the region had been "battered" overnight by strong winds.

The current forecast for this evening's high tide at 6pm is 4.95 metres.

He said, that in his opinion, no temporary measure could have averted the flood problems of Tuesday evening last.

Cumbria Police said the weather will still have an effect on the morning commute, the A595 is only passable with care at Muncaster Bridge; whilst the A66 is closed to high-sided vehicles from Durham.

Scattered blustery showers will push in too, with some drier and brighter spells in between.

About 3,000 homes across Northern Ireland are still without power on Wednesday while 1,000 homes in England and 300 in Wales are without power as well.

As of 5pm today, 2,000 customers who lost supply during the storm are still without power.

In the Republic high winds left at least 55,000 properties with no power as games swept in from the Atlantic.

ESB Networks said that counties worst affected in the Republic included Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim, Cavan and Monaghan.

People are advised to check the PowerChecker service for the latest updates on outages, to log any outages here, and to never touch or approach fallen or damaged wires.

"Aiming to restore as many customers as possible tonight, they will deploy again before first light tomorrow", a spokesman said.

Emergency responders, ministers and Met Eireann held a meeting in Dublin yesterday to assess the fallout from the storm which left parts of Galway city under water. It will be on lessons learned and how we can improve our warning systems into the future because we are going to have more storms.

"We have been very fortunate". But we can't predict all the vagaries of weather and sometimes things will happen that weren't predicted in the models.

"But then the teams were on the ground, ready to respond from the local authority and they have been there working overnight".
