Salford sees the arrival of Storm Eunice
By George Icke | 18th Feb 2022
Less than 24 hours after strong winds and showers covered the UK thanks to storm Dudley, storm Eunice is beginning to rip its way through Salford and the West of England.
Today's storm is expected to be one of the worst we've seen in over 30 years, with an extremely rare 'Red Weather Warning' issued by The Met Office for some parts of The UK. Usually reserved for the very worst storms, the red weather warning indicates a serious risk to life due to flying debris.
The University of Salford has suspended all in-person lectures and workshops today in recognition of the risks presented by the storm. UoS said:
"Due to severe weather warnings for tomorrow, you are advised to not travel to campus. Many buildings will be closed so inaccessible to students."
"Wherever possible all lessons will go ahead online, with practical workshops suspended. You are advised to check Blackboard and your email for information about your course."
"Further updates will follow if necessary."
Greater Manchester is currently under a yellow weather warning with forecasters predicting between 2-5 cm of snow, heavy rain and hail showers as well as strong winds in excess of 70MPH.
Simon King is the senior weather presenter at BBC North, based in MediaCityUK, and he shared the following forecasts for Storm Eunice on Twitter.
