Suffolk Police continue to respond to incidents relating to the current stormy conditions being experienced by the county.
During the two hours since the last update, police have continued to deal with a large number of calls, the vast majority of which relate to trees falling on road and power/telephone lines coming down.
One update of note relates to the Orwell Bridge, which has re-opened to traffic.
Police would continue to ask that people be aware of the following, as there are still strong, gusty winds affecting the county.
– Flying debris, gusts of high winds and obstructions will make journeys and outdoor activities more dangerous.
– If you have to travel, consider your mode of transport.
Motorbikes and bicycles are particularly vulnerable in high cross winds.
A storm of this severity has the potential to overturn high-sided vehicles and caravans
– Steer clear of sea fronts and quays. High winds will also give large waves and spray along the coasts.
Avoid woodland, beaches and exposed headlands.
– Consider how to minimise risk to yourself, your family and your property – and be a good neighbour if you know an elderly or vulnerable person who might need some help.
– Keep yourself up-to-date with the latest information by visiting the Met Office website or by tuning in to their local radio and TV news broadcasts – and, for travel information, monitor websites for local transport providers.
