Sussex: Met Office warn of 80mph winds

Forecasters are predicting a wet and extremely windy start to Sunday morning with winds of up 80mph battering the Sussex coast.

The strong winds could mean power lines coming down, train services being disrupted and damage to buildings.

The Met Office is warning the winds could be almost as strong inland.

It has issued an Amber warning on its website, the second highest category.

The website says: "Storm Angus is expected to bring some very strong winds to coastal counties of southeast England for a time on Sunday morning, when gusts of 70-80 mph are possible.

Be prepared for disruption to travel services, interruptions to power supplies and some damage to buildings."

The Met Office website also has a prediction form the Chief Forecaster. "Angus will move northeast across southern and southeast England during Sunday morning. Southerly then southwesterly gales are likely with storm force winds developing over the English Channel and affecting some coastal districts. 

"Very squally showers are also expected such that isolated gusts of 70-75 mph are also possible further inland in the Amber warning area."
