Post-Bertha storm to hit south England, flood alert issued
England, Aug 8: An Atlantic storm, which the experts call 'remains of hurricane Bertha', has a 60% chance of hitting the south of England, the Met Office has warned.

According to a UK newspaper report, the storm will come towards the UK during the next few days.

The newspaper report says that while the south of England is most at risk, there is a 30% chance the storm could pass across the north of France and just miss the UK or an even lower probability it could hit Wales and northern UK. 

Met officials have warned that the storm might bring heavy rain and strong winds. According to the report, the storm is moving away from the western side of the Atlantic, after hitting the Caribbean islands with gusts of more than 90 mph (145 kph). It has hit normal life across the region with thousands of homes left without power.

Experts have issued flood alert too, said the report.
