Watch how the bad weather' s been affecting the UK

Weather warnings have been in place for large parts of the UK as winds and floods continue to cause loads of damage.

Over 16,000 homes and workplaces have had no power - that can mean no electricity, lights, hot food, or heating.

Lorries have been overturned on the motorway in North Yorkshire and in Cumbria on Thursday there was a gust of wind touching 111mph.

We want to know if you've been affected.

"Near my house there is a shop with a HUGE metal banner. My Mum told me that it fell down whilst I was at school. Luckily, no one was standing underneath it, so no one was hurt."

Emily, 12, London, England

"The wind has been bad here, our trampoline is completely smashed up and the scaffolding that was up the side of our house fell against my window, luckily it didn't smash. My sister's high school' s front door was smashed because of the wind.... The sea was coming over the bank the wind speed was over 100mph. It's awful, the power was off for ages and when it came back on it went straight back off."

Emily, 11, west coast of Scotland

"We had a power cut for 3 hours - the lights are still flickering, it was boring. I feel sorry for people who have had power cut for days."

Bryanna, 9, Ireland

"We have had strong winds too but it's not been as bad as in some parts of the country. The wind made me walk and run so fast that I nearly fell over while I was to school this morning, luckily I'm safe, cosy and warm inside my house now. Good luck to other children who are in heavy, strong and worse conditions!"

India, 11, London, England

"The weather here is shocking. Stairs have turned into waterfalls and my school's built on a hill so the majority of the bottom half is flooded - it's been a nightmare getting around. Also, my road is completely flooded so I'm getting soaked. I wish the summer sun would come out!"

Lauren, 14, Yorkshire, England
