Four dead after Storm Babet wreaks destruction across UK and Ireland – video


Four individuals have passed away and additional warnings about potential danger to human life have been issued following the occurrence of Storm Babet. The Nottinghamshire county council deemed it a major event, resulting in the evacuation of at least 200 properties due to the record-breaking rise of the River Idle. Cleanup efforts are currently in progress in Derbyshire, which was one of the areas most severely affected. An 83-year-old woman in Derbyshire was discovered deceased by her son after her residence was flooded. In Scotland, the town of Brechin could only be reached by boat after a mandatory evacuation was declared for the entire area. Authorities anticipate that the number of fatalities may increase in the near future.
