Eye of the storm misses county

[wzslider autoplay=”true” height=”400″]

THE WEATHER system which brought storm force winds to much of the south of the UK has missed Pembrokeshire.
It was expected that the weather front could hit the county hard, but it diverted from its path much to the relief of locals.
Winds reached as high as 99mph in some areas, but figures on the Met Office website show that the worst of the storm hit most of southern England.
Wind and rain did hit southern parts but there are no reported issues from the area as Pembrokeshire dodged the worst part of the storm.
Dyfed Powys Police said: “We didn’t have any calls related to the weather, thankfully”.
The storm developed as expected just off to the south west of the UK last night, before tracking up into the Bristol Channel in the early hours of the morning.
Many trees were felled and major transport disruptions are being reported across England.
The storm has now passed but strong winds and rain expected for the rest of the day.
