Following weeks of drought warnings and hosepipe bans, Britain is back to its blustery, windswept best.

Gusts of up to 71mph an hour battered South West England and Wales yesterday leaving trees uprooted, power lines down and much of the country waterlogged.

The Met Office has issued a “code yellow” severe weather warning, urging members of the public to be aware of conditions which have “the potential to cause danger to life or widespread disruption”.

Trees and debris bringing down power lines led to 10,000 homes being left without power in south Wales and the West Midlands on Sunday night, as well as 2,000 homes in the South West.

Hurricane Irene: Readiness and Safety

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 27, 2011

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Hurricane Irene began lashing the North Carolina shore on Saturday, foreshadowing with brutal authority what is to come as this vast storm, its most forceful winds stretching outward for 90 miles, churned north toward New York.

It would be very bad if we hit like how news media saying! be alert. Here some safety measures:

First off, the hurricane will probably not be as bad as the news makes it out to be and for most of us will more likely be an interesting and exciting day. However, it currently looks like it will hit NYC as a type 2 hurricane, which is stronger than was originally thought, so you do need to be cautious.

There will probably some power outages and depending on the extent of the outages, it could take several hours to get it back up.

The MTA has already said that it will be halting all service and expects that there will be some damage due to flooding. So… it may be some time before it is all up and running again. Currently the scheduled shut down for all MTA services is Noon on Saturday.

The real danger is from flying objects (such as lawn furniture or wind chimes) that the wind picks up and whips around. So of course you should stay indoors.

Minneapolis Metrodome Collapses As Blizzard Dumps 20 Inches Of Snow On Midwest (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 12, 2010


So sad. May be snow load was not considered properly during structural design. Anyway by considerin­g the following could be helpful to avoid the accident:
1. Roof pitch–sno­w cannot slide off flatter roofs (3/12 pitch or less) easily.
2. So what do you do if you have too much snow on your roof? The simple answer is to get it off as soon as possible. Generally there is some time between a large snowfall event and possible structural failure.
