Helicopters and generators have been deployed to help the people, he said.

Properties in Cornwall and Devon were particularly hard hit, with 15,000 homes without electricity on Friday.

Meanwhile, several new weather warnings have been issued, which could further aggravate the problem.

The storm will be followed by eight inches of snow, freezing snow and winds of up to 80 mph.

Here’s how:

Tonight the temperature will drop to -1C in some areas.

This is followed by a new yellow warning for the vast majority of Scotland and snow below England.

Snowfall on the East Coast will be avoided – but residents south of Stoke-on-Trent are urged to exercise caution.

This warning is available until 9 a.m. Saturday.

There is also a separate yellow alert for south winds between 6am and 6pm today.

The warning covers South Wales, parts of the western country and the entire south coast.

On Sunday, yellow wind warnings were issued for Scotland and parts of the northwest, while a rain alert was issued between Carlisle and Backwell in Derbyshire.
