Strong winds are set to sweep across the country tomorrow and the county council is ready to deal with any disruption in Leicestershire.
A Met Office amber warning of high winds has been issued in the county with gusts expected between 60mph and 70mph.
Leicestershire County Council will have crews available during the day and night in the wake of Storm Eunice to keep the road network moving and deal with any reported issues.
Our forestry and emergency response teams will be available to make roads and footpaths safe if trees or branches fall due to strong winds.Person:Cabinet member for highways and transport councillor Ozzy O'Shea
We will constantly monitor the weather situation and resources will be available if needed. However, along with other agencies, we would also urge people to consider only making journeys, if essential.
Residents are also being encouraged to check for any unusual changes in their trees over the past days and weeks. People can ask themselves:
Are there any cracks in the tree which were not there a day or so ago?;
Are there any cracks or humps in the soil which were not there a day or so ago?;
Are there any hanging branches in the tree which could fall?
People can report fallen trees on the highway or other road issues by calling the council on 0116 305 0001.
Yesterday (WED), the county council also attended 19 incidents of fallen trees as the impact of Storm Dudley was also felt across the county.
The reported incidents of fallen trees during Storm Dudley on Wednesday were at:
HINCKLEY AND BOSWORTH
COAL PIT LANE
LEESTHORPE nr MELTON
