A severe storm is predicted to hit London on Friday 18 February. The Met Office has predicted winds could reach 70mph and there is a risk of injury, damage to property and infrastructure, and disruption to power supply or transport services. A red warning has been issued.
The situation is changing rapidly. We recommend that you check the Met Office website for the latest weather updates.
The Council is working with partners to make sure the borough is prepared. We want residents to be as safe as possible.
Please see below some simple steps you can take to keep yourself, your family, and your property protected:
UK Power Networks has organised additional staff in their contact centre. More engineers on the ground will be available to help customers whose electricity supply is affected by the weather.
Residents can access regular updates and information about individual power cuts by visiting the UK Power Networks website. You can also get general updates through their Twitter account @UKPowerNetworks
UK Power Networks provide extra help to customers on their Priority Service Register during a power cut. Households with older or disabled people, those with children under five, or where someone uses medical or mobility equipment that requires electricity can join the register.
More information about the Priority Service can be found on the UK Power Networks website.
If you need extra support, or the weather causes an issue in your area, you can call the Council on 020 8496 3000.
