Stay safe as Storm Henry hits Glasgow

Tonight may be another night for battening down the hatches as Glasgow braces itself for Storm Henry.

The latest storm to batter Scotland is expected to hit this afternoon, with the Met Office issuing an amber ‘be prepared’ warning in advance of 70-80mph winds.

The warning is in force from 3pm until 9am tomorrow — which could mean traffic woes for commuters.

Transport minister Derek Mackay warned: “Our multi-agency response team, based at the National Traffic Scotland Control centre which has been in operation throughout the weekend will remain in place to monitor events and respond as required.

“Our fleet of patrol vehicles and gritters are treating roads where needed around the clock to help keep roads open to traffic, but quickly changing conditions means journeys could be disrupted.”

Travellers are asked to check weather reports, the Traffic Scotland website or Twitter feed before making a journey.

Storm Henry follows last week’s Storm Gertrude — which left Queen’s Park’s playground a no go area, thanks to a fallen tree.
