The weather has also caused problems for train services.

Today when travelling to school my taxi took a long time due to trees on the roads which had fallen down because of the harsh winds. Also when travelling to school a wave came into contact with the vehicle I was travelling in and there was also a delay to my journey because of the bad weather.
