The red alert is for southwestern England, with winds reaching 145 degrees from the extreme west of Cornwall to Cardiff in south Wales.
Also, orange warnings have been issued across southern England, including London. The capital, where the wind can reach 130, covers many parks and the famous Ferris wheel “London Eye”.
The Meteorological Agency warned that the storm could emit “life-threatening flying debris”, “exploding roofs and falling power cables, damaging buildings and homes”.
This can lead to the closure of roads, railways and bridges, and delays or cancellations of buses, trains and boats.
A railway spokesman said all Friday trains in Wales had been canceled, citing the safety of passengers and staff.
