Torrential Rain and Gales Hit Cornwall
4:43pm 21st October 2013
(Updated 4:43pm 21st October 2013)
As wind and rain lashes Cornwall there is a yellow weather warning out for most of the Duchy.
Up to four centimetres could batter us by the end of Monday.
The Met Office says it is enough to give localised flooding - slap bang in the middle of rush hour.
Forecasters think the weather should ease up midmorning before another wave arrives.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Heavy rain is likely to affect parts of southwest England and south Wales this morning accompanied by strong southerly winds.
"The public should be aware of the risk of localised surface water flooding, more especially in urban areas and affecting roads around the rush hour.
"The heavy rain should ease around the middle of this morning but more heavy rain is likely later today for which a further warning may be required.
"An active frontal system will move northwards across southwest England and Wales this morning. It is likely to bring 15-25 mm of rain fairly widely, falling in some 6 hours, with a risk of over 40 mm on higher ground."
Winds up to gale force have already brought a forty foot tree crashing down near Bissoe - narrowly missing a bedroom.
The hundred year old beech crushed cars as it was ripped down by the winds in the early hours of Sunday morning.
People living nearby say it was inches away from crashing through their windows.
