Southampton clash might be delayed as ‘danger to life’ storm hits Liverpool

Liverpool is currently being stormed by strong winds as ‘Storm Arwen’ has hit the city and the weather forecast expects things to get worse.

As per the Liverpool Echo, the Met Office has declared the storm as ‘danger to life’ – gusts of 60 to 70 mph are expected in coastal areas.

The weather warning said: “Injuries and danger to life from flying debris are possible Some damage to trees, temporary structures and buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs, could happen

“Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible. Some roads and bridges may close. Power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage

“Injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.”

Here are a few tweets from locals over the horrid weather:


Under these circumstances, playing in Liverpool might be an issue. Southampton are set to face the Reds at Anfield in a few hours time.

While there are no official reports of a match delay, should these weather conditions continue, it might be possible that we could see the game being postponed for safety reasons.

We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best here as pending further updates, the game is going to go as scheduled.
