It happened just outside university in the wolverhampton city centre

I feel bad about the man who got flattened in his car by a tree. What a horrible way to go...

Oh my, that's terrible. Here in the US I haven't seen much in the news about it. Of course, we rarely get weather news for other countries, but when it's that dangerous usually they'll report it.

I'm so sorry for the girl you knew and the man in the car and anyone else killed or injured.

Please be careful and stay safe!

a life cut short so abruptly, it's shocking. Only comfort is that she didn't suffer/know what was happening.

That is horrible Jade! I am guessing Storm Doris was similar to a hurricane or typhoon? I haven't seen anything about what happened over there on the news but by your descriptions, it sounds so bad. So sorry you guys had to deal with that and that you knew someone who was killed in the storm

I have no idea what it was i just know it was deadly.

It wasn't bad in the whole of the UK, but it hit the midlands the worst. South and North only had mild wind and the odd bit of snow. The midlands had 94mph wind, hail, storms and snow. It was deadly for us, literally. Here's a list of stuff so far:

All motorways closed, namely M6 that runs through Midlands.
All public transport, especially midlands national railway services, closed.
All planes abandoned landing.
University Student and Lecturer killed by debris.
Five pedestrians hit by falling debris in London and hospitalised with serious head injuries.
Two males in London in hospital with broken arm injuries.
Six year old hospitalised in the Midlands with head injuries.
Man killed in car by fallen tree.
A woman (un-named) in her 60's crushed by fallen tree.
Snow closed motorways in Scotland.

Yeah, the worst of it never reached Scotland.

I read the report saying colleagues were with the girl from the university when it happened. So some of your people actually saw it! That must've been horrific too.

A girl in my class at university was crushed by a shop sign falling down (the size of a coffee table). It hit her in the head and she died instantly at the scene. People have been crushed in cars by trees falling down. A little boy is in hospital because of debris that fell off a building hit him. The list of casualties goes on. Then the roads were filled with stand still traffic all day and all public transport was cancelled.

Thus, I couldn't get to university. I left half hour early but whilst waiting at the bus stop I got blown over into the road and could barely breath when the 94mph wind was blowing at me. So I went home. I left it 5 hours and then left to go to Luke's. No busses were running so I walked to my nearest town to see if the trains were working. I saw 8 fallen down trees. One had destroyed a house... I got to the train station and the lady screamed at me to go away very rudely. So I stood outside with no shelter and then it started to chuck it down with rain. And I had to stand outside in that violent wind and rain for an hour and ask Luke to come and get me.

The storms gone today... but everything is very grey today. No transport still and the mourning begins for those who have died.

If anyone is out there this weekend, please be safe. There's reports of it coming back.
That's horrible! And crazy! I didn't think England got storms like that...it sounds like a hurricane!

Ok, Jade. I didn't know if it was a storm like that or not. That is so sad everything that happened and all the people killed. That is a long list of people hurt or killed by the storm and the pictures.. just wow.

Thanks everyone. We've had a few memorial services and there's a lot of support at the university for grief, so we're all okay

And Heidi, so lovely to have you back
