BBC Breakfast viewers were in hysterics this morning after noticing that Storm Dennis was leaving a rude-shaped weather warning over Wales.
Strong wind and torrential rain from ‘Dennis the Menace’ has lashed the UK this weekend, with the Met Office now warning of “danger to life”.
Over 300 flood warnings have been issued across the UK, as winds reached over 90mph on Saturday, and 142mm of rain was recorded in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales.
The phallic shape of the 1,200 mile-wide storm’s impact took this morning’s BBC viewers by surprise, with many taking to Twitter to share their amusement.
One viewer tweeted: “Be careful if you’re in Wales today. Something strange in the sky…”
Another said: “Very worrying in Wales from the BBC. Storm Denis, more like Storm Penis”.
A third said: “The BBC Weather people have drawn a big penis on Wales. A big amber penis warning.”
One joked: “Be careful out there people, potential giant penis to cover South Wales today”.
RED WEATHER WARNING
Red weather warnings, meaning there is a likely risk to life, are in place in nine council areas across Wales, and in two areas of England.
It is the first time that the Met Office has issued a red weather warning since 2015.
In today’s warning, they said there could be “Danger to life from fast flowing or deep floodwater”.
They added that “Extensive flooding to homes and businesses is likely”, and that “Communities could be cut off by floodwater, perhaps for several days.”
In response to the warnings, homes have been evacuated in Monmouthshire, near Newport, Wales, and in Neath, near Port Talbot.
In Skenfrith, Monmouthshire, police have advised residents to evacuate their homes or to stay upstairs.
In a statement, they said: “Residents of Skenfrith are being advised to evacuate due to flooding.
“Should residents refuse to leave they are advised to move to the upstairs of their property.”
Flights across the country have also been affected, with 170 cancelled as of this morning, leaving 25,000 Brits affected.
EasyJet cancelled around 350 flights this weekend, with almost 100 supposed to fly from London’s Gatwick Airport.
