Disruption as Storm Imogen kicks up a fuss

Apparently we’re still naming storms. Fine. Whatever floats your boat – or almost sinks it, as Storm Imogen has threatened over the last few days.

Of course, the reason we are naming them is to raise awareness and employ more secure preventative measures – and the Island took a battering at the weekend.

The storm has led to travel disruption and power outages across the south of the UK and Wales, with Britain facing up to 96mph winds in some areas.

Imogen is the ninth named storm to hit the UK this season already. The Island was one of the areas with the strongest winds, with ferry crossings suspended and a whole host of trees pushed over, it’s been a weekend of turbulence for commuters.

Storm Imogen’s partner-in-crime, Storm Gertrude, did however ease off on Saturday for the Bembridge Illusions, meaning competitive sailing could commence.
