Amber Warning in Place
An Amber Warning has been issued by the Met Office due to Storm Eunice, which may cause significant disruption due to extremely strong winds.
Here’s what you can do to keep yourself safe during the storm:
- Stay indoors as much as possible
- If you do go out, try not to walk or shelter close to buildings and trees
- Keep away from the sheltered side of boundary walls and fences
- Do not go outside to repair damage while the storm is in progress
- If possible, enter and leave your house through doors in the sheltered side, closing them behind you
- Open internal doors only as needed, and close them behind you
- Take care when driving on exposed routes such as bridges, or high open roads, delay your journey or find alternative routes if possible
- Slow down and be aware of side winds, particular care should be taken if you are towing or are a high sided vehicle
- Do not drive unless your journey is really necessary
Only call 999 in an emergency, or when there’s a risk to life.

Broxtowe Parks and Open Spaces
Due to the The Met Office Weather Warnings as Storm Eunice is expected to bring extremely strong winds today and into the weekend .
We would ask people to only visit our Parks and Green Spaces if it is essential to do so. To minimise the potential risk caused by falling branches or flying debris please avoid any areas of Parks and Green Spaces where there are trees.
Forecasted high winds may cause trees to fall onto the highway, and if this is the case, it’s important to know how to report this.
