UK Storm Denis; a menace; identified as a “weather bomb” according to the national weather service of Great Britain, devastating the UK continually. The Meteorological officials determined the storm as a weather bomb because the air pressure decreased by a certain measure in 24 hours, causing massive turbulence and high wind speed.
The storm’s unleashed wind power of 91 miles per hour stranded 1200 miles wide — boasted its citizens with many casualties. The severe weather condition’s impact caused much chaos to different areas of England, Wales, and Scotland; anyhow, most of those areas are still recovering from the previous storm Ciara which called as Sabine in German-speaking countries.
The residents of the affected areas have been rescued and advised by the British soldiers and flood wardens. Many residents have urged to evacuate to safer premises due to life-threatening floods and stubborn winds. However, many roads and pavements have been swallowing by the colder rivers; flowing faster than last week itself.

We are urging people to follow the safety advice from officials and to keep a close eye on the latest Met Office weather warnings.
Andrew Pearce from the Environment Agency said,
We have concerned the storm Dennis is gonna be at least severe as storm Ciara, and there are consequences that we are deploying all of our mobiles and pumps, all of our temporaries defend across the country.
