Heavy rain and winds are hitting England and Wales as remnants of what was Hurricane Bertha cross the country.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain for most of the UK, and is urging people to be aware of flooding, strong winds and large waves.
The storms starting in the south and west are expected to head north-east and hit Scotland later on Sunday.
The Environment Agency said the weather was not as severe as last winter’s storms.
But it urged holidaymakers to check flood warnings before setting off in their cars.
On Sunday morning, winds gusting at 50mph were recorded on the Isles of Scilly, with gusts of 40mph across the south west of England and heavy thunderstorms across the Isle of Wight, southern England and Wales.
