A yellow weather warning has been issued for the South West from Monday as the UK is set to experience the tail end of a category three hurricane.
Hurricane Ophelia will be a storm when it hits the country, but the South West could still see some very high winds.
The Met Office's yellow weather warning means that severe weather is possible, and people should be prepared for possible disruption.
A spell of very windy weather is likely on Monday in association with ex-Ophelia.
Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journeys times and cancellations possible. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage. Some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs could happen, perhaps leading to injuries and danger to life from flying debris.
