The Met Office is warning that strong winds could cause travel and utility disruption in parts of the UK on January 21 and January 22. A 24-hour yellow weather warning for wind has been issued for the city and other parts of the region, with gusts of 50-60 mph expected in many areas and up to 70 mph for coastal locations. The warning advises that there is a small chance of injuries and damage to buildings from flying debris, longer journey times, road and bridge closures, power cuts, and large waves near coastal areas. The Met Office urges people to secure loose items around their homes and prepare for delays. If you plan to travel, be aware of road conditions and transportation schedule changes. Additionally, gather essential items to cope with potential power cuts and stay safe near the coast during stormy weather.
