General Advice for weather disruption in Kent

Emergency Services and Local Authorities advice you not to travel at peak times during bad weather, to stay away from the coastline, to be prepared for power cuts and to look around your gardens to see if you can move anything that might be blown away or into windows. Put cars in garages or keep them away from buildings.
