Verdun - it sounds as if you're going to get a storm like the one we had in East Anglia in '87 - gable ends of houses removed and large trees were uprooted, and some were sort of 'sucked' out of the ground in the vacuums created by some of the strongest gusts.
One dear lady in the coastal town where my Aged Ps live woke in her bed in the morning to find she was looking out onto the road as her house wall had been blown away!
We were so lucky that there were few serious injuries or worse, because the worst of the storm happened overnight when everyone was at home (I won't say asleep because I wasn't). So the message from our experience is - stay indoors!!!
Fill what flasks etc you have with hot water as you're likely to lose electricity and hold on to your hat. Tell Spike he'll have to cross his legs . Thinking of you all over there ((hugs))
