20 years ago, we had wind...
A mighty wind...

It was the Great Storm, the tail end of Hurricane Floyd, which roared across the SW and SE of England. I was in Yorkshire at the time and wasn't really affected that much...

Michael Fish mentioned that a lady had rung in and asked about the hurricane, and ended up looking a little foolish. This was apparently not the case though ? Read this interesting BBC story.

There are some interesting stories about the night on the BBC website:
HERE and HERE (with video clip)

We will offer the chance to go back in time in lessons this week...

WIKIPEDIA article
St. Vincent college has some good links relating to the storm, and some satellite images.

MET OFFICE page on the storm.

55 images of the damage done in KENT: Sevenoaks was a major casualty too...

Dan, Dan the Weatherman
has some information too

Watch out for an ITV special on Tuesday night...
Also some clips on YouTube
