Ten flights cancelled at Glasgow Airport as Storm Callum strikes

Storm Callum is packing heavy rain and strong winds

Trains between Swansea and Carmarthen stopped running at 19:00 on Friday evening due to anticipated coastal flooding.

Wind speeds hit 76mph on the Isles of Scilly as Storm Callum blew in during the early hours of Friday.

The storm has caused severe power cuts that have largely affected southwest Ireland.

Passengers are advised to check service updates with ferry companies before travelling from either Holyhead or Fishguard. ESB Networks announced that 30,000 homes were left without power.

A yellow weather warning is in place tomorrow across large parts of north west and west Wales, with further heavy and persistent rainfall forecast.

Other regions of the United Kingdom were expected to remain largely dry, but strong winds were forecast.

Natural Resources Wales is warning people to be alert for more flooding as the heavy rain could see rivers continuing to rise on Saturday. "We've got a wind warning which covers all the western side of the UK".

The National Emergency Coordination Group met in advance of its arrival, but the aftermath appeared to consist of little more than some power outages, some cancelled flights, and some blocked roads due to fallen trees and branches.

A Met Office yellow "be aware" warning for wind has been in place since 3am for the west of the country, with gusts of about 80mph expected.

Whitchurch in Pembrokeshire saw 15mm of rain fall in a matter of hours on Friday morning as Michael moved in.

Rainfall totals could reach as high as 150mm over the Brecon Beacons, almost as high as the monthly average of 170mm for Wales.

The warning will be in place until midnight tonight (Friday, October 12). Temperatures will return to mainly normal for the time of year with light to moderate southerly winds, freshening from a south to southeasterly direction later as another spell of rain arrives Monday night.
