Heavy rain continued to batter Southampton today (Tuesday November 1) as Storm Claudio continues to rage through the city.
A yellow weather warning was issued by the Met Office yesterday (Monday October 31) and Southampton has felt its full force since.
A Met Office spokesman said: “A small area of low pressure, named Storm Claudio by Météo France, will move east across the English Channel bringing a period of strong to high winds.
What do the different Met Office warnings mean?
“While the strongest winds are expected over the Channel Islands and northern France, parts of southern England may well experience gales for some time overnight.
“Southerly winds will strengthen before veering west and are expected to be 50 to 60 mph, particularly over coastal areas, with a risk of isolated coastal gusts to 70 mph.”
The near-continuous heavy rain has caused road flooding, slowing motorists in places like Lobelia Road in Swaythling.
