UK Storms: North Somerset prepare for disruption
As high wind speeds and heavy rainfall are forecast for Sunday night into Monday morning, North Somerset Council is gearing up to deal with the anticipated disruption this could cause.
Extra crews will be on standby to deal with any fallen trees or road clearance that’s needed.
The council has also had crews out in advance of the weekend making sure that clearance work is carried out in areas that are prone to flooding to try and mitigate the impact of any additional rainfall.
There will also be extra staff out on Monday to carry out inspections across the district and assess whether more resources are needed in particular areas.

Waste and recycling collections should be carried out as normal on Monday, but crews are expecting to have to deal with wind-blown containers and garden waste bags.
Residents can help out by sheltering containers wherever possible from the prevailing winds and ensuring lighter objects are weighed down.
The risk of coastal flooding this weekend is very low due to the stage in the tidal cycle, so no tidal flooding issues are anticipated.
