Storm hits Wiltshire
9:20am Tuesday 24th December 2013 in Latest News
Powerful winds of around 80mph and heavy rain fall has left its mark on Wiltshire with residents experiencing power cuts.
Southern Electric is dealing with the power loss across Wiltshire which was caused by the severe weather conditions.
A spokesperson said: “Our engineers are currently accessing the problems and we are trying our best to restore power to those affected as quickly as possible.”
In Studley Rise, Trowbridge, last night, a tree was blown over by the powerful winds crushing garden fences across three homes. Wiltshire Council is currently dealing with the problem.
Resident Janet Veal said: “All the fences are match wood now, it happened just before we were going to bed. We are pensioners and it absolutely terrified us.
"It just missed the conservatory of neighbours and thank god nobody was out in the gardens when the tree fell over. This really isn’t what we needed just before Christmas.”
