School closes as Storm Isha causes chaos, affecting traveland power services in the UK. On Monday, Britain experienced widespread disruption across its rail network, with flights being canceled and numerous homes left without power following the overnight onslaught of Storm Isha. Scotland bore the brunt of the storm, facing gusts exceeding 90 miles per hour (144 km/h), resulting in the suspension of all train services.
Both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports saw dozens of flight cancellations. The unfavorable weather conditions also had an impact on some train services in southern England, including those between London and Gatwick Airport.
UK Power Networks reported the successful restoration of power to the majority of properties affected by electricity outages in eastern and south-eastern England. However, approximately 45,000 homes in Northern Ireland remained without power.
Meanwhile, across the North Sea, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam preemptively canceled dozens of Monday flights due to anticipated strong winds in the Netherlands. Additionally, airlines canceled 102 flights to and from Dublin on Sunday.
According to ScotRail on the social media platform X, train services in Scotland will remain affected until Network Rail Scotland inspects the tracks for damage.
