LONDON, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. United Kingdom has been affected by a powerful storm, which caused chaos in the nation’s transport system. BBC has reported that the second terminal of the Gatwick international airport has been operating intermittently.
Around 100,000 homes in southern regions of the country do not have power. Railway communication in the southern and western regions have been shut down. A number of roads and bridges have been closed as well. 250 residential areas are on high alert due to flood hazard. Hurricane winds have almost paralyzed ferry service between the UK and continental Europe. The elements have claimed lives of five people: two drowned, three more were killed in a traffic accident. The authorities are urging citizens to stay at home.
