Storm Arwen leaves much of Britain without electricity

Scots are still without electricity in their homes because Storm Arwen severely damaged the electricity grid. This happened due to uprooted trees that damaged power lines and the distribution network. These occur during climatic disturbances.

Residents of different parts of Scotland, Perthshire and Angus etc. are still waiting for the energy situation to return to normal. Life today depends on electricity at every stage. In such cases, Renewable energy may be a solution. Those with the appropriate provisions can breathe easily.

Faced with the increase in climate change, the importance of alternative sources of electricity is highlighted, especially for businesses, schools, hospitals, etc.

The BBC says Scots are struggling to get reliable updates from their energy providers. One of them, in his 80s, said he and his wife felt “completely abandoned”.

SSEN is the energy supplier. It confirms the restoration of supply to thousands of customers, but many more have yet to get it. Energy companies have apologized to those affected. Storm Arwen hit parts of the UK with winds of 100mph in some areas.

The Met Office warns of damage from the storm.

Strong winds from Storm Arwen damaged trees and properties, and the Met Office has warned of the risk of wet, cold and windy conditions.

There could be northerly winds of up to 60 mph.

The BBC mentions the possibilities of high tides on the east coast. To ensure safety, there would be the deployment of anti-flood barriers. Minister Nicola Sturgeon took to Twitter to say that those facing the “almost intolerable” situation would receive help as soon as possible.

There are complaints about the difficulties people face. It is particularly frustrating for the elderly population. They feel isolated. As one commented – “We could have been on Mars.” In February, a winter storm affected life in Texas and other parts of the United States.

Communities paralyzed by the storm

According to Mirror UK, Storm Arwen has left thousands of people without power.

In addition, he destroyed a caravan site. The high-speed frigid explosion that struck the country robbed thousands of residents of electricity for six days. It is easy to understand the plight of people because electricity brings about life. In one locality, 6,500 houses still lived in darkness. The storm damaged many buildings and many schools in the area remained closed.

In addition, there was no electricity, no heating, no electricity, no working telephone lines. People have to get used to such scenarios. This is how the world reacts to the mistreatment it endures at the hands of humans. In August, Tropical Storm Fred hit Florida, Georgia and the Bahamas.

Ruined caravan site due to storm Arwen

The storm devastated a caravan site in Northumberland.

Mirror UK says it was one of the hardest hit places, and the force of the storm destroyed many holiday homes. Some caravans had only the basics left. Many household items such as kitchen cabinets, TVs and sofas are strewn across the waterfront.

One of the locals described the site as “a scene of devastation”. He added that the caravans shattered like balsa wood. An electrician compared the scenes of destruction to the effect of an atomic bomb. A Northumberland councilor confirms that five towns and villages still have no electricity even after six days. It seems that some places are in remote areas without any means of communication. Authorities go door to door trying to gather information about their needs. They provide food, drink, and even accommodation if they cannot live in their homes.
