Thunderstorms and Heavy Rain due in the UK

12 August 2020, 08:02:17

Many thunderstorms and rainy weather are due this week, and there is a high flood warning. The thunderstorms are because of the hot and moist weather which England has been experiencing recently.

Yesterday, London and Scotland experienced heavy rain and a thunderstorm. It flooded many houses and buildings and also distrupted some public travel networks.

During a thunderstorm, the safest place is inside a building and away from any electricals - such as a TV or computer. If you cannot get inside, being in a car is also safe as the lightning will pass around the outside surface metal of the car. If you are stuck in an open area, crouch down and DO NOT go under trees for shelter.
