An Atlantic hurricane recorded winds of 122 mph in north-western Europe, killing at least nine people, powering thousands, and shattering the roof of London’s O2 field. The UK Meteorological Office said Hurricane Eunice, which originated in the mid-Atlantic and moved from the Azores to Europe by the jet stream, posed a threat to life.
The storm struck western England, making landfall in Cornwall, where the waves lashed the coast, sending heaps of spray onto the roofs of cottages. More than 100,000 people were hit by power cuts as lines were snapped and ancient trees were uprooted. “We only issue red weather warnings when we believe the weather is life-threatening,” the meteorological department said.
