    1961, 1839. Occasionally get hit by major storms after Atlantic hurricanes.

    As the Atlantic warms the areas warm enough to support hurricane formation expands. Ophelia is going to be a fucking disaster here and is also currently fanning massive wildfires through Portugal and Spain, both of which are running a 6-9 degrees hotter than usual October with 60% lower than usual humidity. Climate change increases the likelihood of hurricanes in Western Europe and this will become the new normal.

    "Our model simulations suggest that tropical hurricanes might become a serious threat for western Europe in the future. Hence, we anticipate an increase in severe storms of predominantly tropical origin reaching western Europe as part of 21st global warming."

    Europe's future. Scorched by wildfires and heatwaves, chilled by sudden freezes and swamped by deluges on the continent, ravaged by hurricanes at the coasts.

    Better get used to it folks.

    3 dead. 330,000 without power. Serious damage in the south and south east.

    We were very lucky.

    I remember The Big Storm of 1987, which I think wasn't a hurricane per se but reached hurricane strength. The devastation it wrought was pretty impressive to a 6-going-on-7-year-old. And probably even some of the adults, too.

    Annoyingly I slept right through it.
