Storm Henry

Storm Henry impacts

Storm Henry was named just one day after Storm Gertrude affected the UK. It brought strong winds across Scotland with the strongest gusts recorded in the Outer Hebrides where South Uist saw a gust of 90 mph.

The storm led to transport disruption with roads shut and train and ferry routes also impacted as wind was accompanied by heavy rain.

Around 3,00 households were left without electricity overnight and both the Tay Road and Forth Road bridges were closed for a time.
