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.

A number of roads and bridges have been closed as well. 250 residential areas are on high alert due to flood hazard.
