UK: Trampoline Gets Blown Away By Storm Franklin's Gusty Wind
Just days after Storm Eunice and Dudley hit the UK and caused widespread chaos, Storm Franklin has arrived and is hammering the UK with heavy wind and rain.
Northern Ireland and parts of Yorkshire are particularly affected by flooding, and the weather is also affecting train travel with Network Rail warning of "severe disruption" to travellers.
The highest wind gust speeds on Monday morning reached 79mph in Capel Curig in Wales, and 78mph in Orlock Head, Northern Ireland, and the Met issued two weather warnings, an amber warning for wind in Northern Ireland, which expired this morning, and a milder yellow warning for wind covering Wales, Northern Ireland, most of England and parts of south-west Scotland.
Another sleepless night ahead for Mica/Pyrite homeowners \n\nWith the soundtrack of howling wind whistling through cracks, snaps & bangs from the house moving. Homeowners fear the next gust could blow another piece of their house off \n\n#micaredress #StormFranklinpic.twitter.com/lNhamwzEpm
Heavy rains brought by #StormFranklin mean #RotherhamCentral will now remain closed until at least Tuesday.\n\n Please continue to check before you travel with @nationalrailenq \n\n 13:00 17:00pic.twitter.com/XTCPvfvdbY

As #StormFranklin batters the North & appears far worse than Eunice\nAs we wait for a gondola at a train station\nThis is when we remember that the Govt & national media is based in London & doesn\u2019t care much\nKeep Safepic.twitter.com/5ZmoZnMmFp
