Waterfall defies gravity as it reverses amid strong winds from Storm Dudley
Parts of the country have been given a red weather warning ahead of Storm Eunice – and Twitter has turned to memes for comfort.
The Met Office issued the highest level of alert for Storm Eunice with a possible "danger to life", particularly across Devon, Cornwall and parts of South Wales. The national weather service forecasted that high impact is very likely, and will come into effect from 7am to 12pm on Friday.
They warn of "flying debris resulting in danger to life" and "damage to buildings and homes, with roofs blown off and power lines brought down."
Other threats include roads, bridges and railway lines being closed with delays and cancellations to public transport, ferry services and flights, and large waves plus "beach material" being thrown onto coastal roads, sea fronts and homes, which could result in flooding for some coastal properties.
Now, we must admit naming a storm "Eunice" softens the blow a touch. And so, the internet digested such information with their own comedic spin: Using memes as a coping mechanism.
IMPORTANT DIRECTIVE FOR ALL UK CATS: Only dogs would be stupid enough to go out in this weather. Find the warmest, most comfortable spot in your home and stay there\u2026until June. #StormDudley #StormEunicepic.twitter.com/pRvBgLgmoQ
