Tornadoes are expected to hit Europe as torrential rain causes floods, according to the BBC.
Tornadoes are anticipated to hit Europe starting Wednesday, according to BBC WEATHER, while torrential rain and flash flooding are expected to cause havoc across the continent.
Central and western Europe will be hit by a slow-moving area of low pressure, which could result in tornadoes, according to BBC Weather’s Ben Rich. Other parts of the continent, including the United Kingdom, will experience a temperature increase. “An region of low pressure has been very, very slow-moving in the western and central parts of Europe,” Mr Rich explained.
“It will continue to rain in heavy bursts across eastern France, sections of Belgium, Luxembourg, and western Germany.
“There is a chance of flash flooding, strong gusts, and perhaps a tornado in certain locations.
“As we move through Wednesday night and into Thursday, this very rainy weather will continue to cycle across this central section of the continent.
“We have some warm air on the eastern edge of this weather system.
“Temperatures in Bucharest reached 35°C, while Athens reached 37°C.
“It’s becoming increasingly sunny over the United Kingdom and Ireland.
“It’s still hot in Scandinavia, with 31°C in Stockholm.”
It comes after flash floods in the capital caused travel mayhem, forcing the closure of a number of London train and tube stations.
Following the heavy rains on Monday evening, Euston Station lines were forced to close, leaving commuters unable to travel into or out of the city via the main transport hub.
Due to the severe rain, many underground stations, notably Chalk Farm and Hampstead in north London and Wimbledon in the south, have closed their doors.
Water pours down the stairwell at Sloane Square tube station, according to a video provided on Twitter.
Cars were also seen straining to navigate streets that appeared to have transformed into rivers following several inches of rain.
“The railway between Watford Junction and Euston has been blocked, and engineers are on site examining the track while the water recedes,” a Network Rail representative said. We will resume train service as soon as it is safe to do so.
“Anyone traveling this evening should check with their train operator or the National Rail Enquiries website for the most up-to-date information,” says the National Rail Enquiries website.
“Brinkwire Summary News” appears to be the epicenter of the flooding issues.
