Einformation: COVID-19 Update – 16 March

Leeds City CouncilSee latest update Cllr Barry Anderson received from the Council this evening.

“As a result of this Cllr. Caroline Anderson and I will not be doing our usual street surgeries throughout the Ward during this time so as to minimise risk to any residents through having face to face contact as per guidelines.

However, we would be happy to hear from anyone via email of any concerns or problems they may have in terms of the current emergency or any other issues. If residents email us we will be able to take appropriate action.

We will still be able to visit external sites, for example to look at excessive tree growth, potholes, any other highways issues etc.

In order to provide support to those residents who don’t have access to electronic means we would ask that you let any of your friends or neighbours who fall into this category to make contact through you so that you can pass the details to us.

I attach a paper Covid19 that is going to be discussed at the Council’s Executive Board Meeting on Wednesday about this serious issue if you want more detail.”

Severe Weather Warning:

The Met Office have issued a Yellow Warning of Wind

Valid from 12:00 on Mon, 16th Oct 2017 until 23:55 on Mon, 16th Oct 2017

Leeds is on the very edge of the area covered by the warning so may or may not be impacted to the extent of the below forecast.

Very strong winds are forecast to affect most western and some central parts of the UK during Monday. These strong winds are forecast in association with the northward track of ex-Ophelia across or near to the west of the British Isles. Southerly winds are most likely to gust between 55 and 65 mph across much of the warning area with the potential for gusts of 80 mph in coastal areas.

Einformation: Severe Weather Warning: Yellow Warning of Wind – Tuesday 12th September to Wed 13th

See update below, received today from Cllr Anderson;

The Met Office have issued a Yellow Warning of Wind

Valid from 20:00 on Tue, 12th Sep 2017 until 10:00 on Wed, 13th Sep 2017

Very strong winds with gusts of 55-65 mph, perhaps reaching 75 mph in exposed places, are looking increasingly likely on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Longer journey times by road, rail and air are likely, with restrictions on roads and bridges. There is also a chance of power cuts, and damage to trees and perhaps buildings.

The strongest winds are expected to arrive in the west of the region later on Tuesday evening and move eastwards overnight. There is some uncertainty in peak wind strengths and how quickly winds will ease on Wednesday morning. Heavy rain will be an additional hazard, especially in the north of the warning area, resulting in especially difficult driving conditions. This warning has been expanded in area and with the likelihood of “medium” impacts increased.

Further updates will be sent if and when the situation dictates.
