STORM Isha has arrived in Herefordshire and it has already led to a key Herefordshire road being closed.

West Mercia Police has said the A40 is shut between Goodrich and Wilton, near Ross-on-Wye, due to several crashes and a fallen tree.


It seems that south Herefordshire is being particularly hit hard by the blustery weather, with fallen trees also blocking the B4221 near Upton and the B4234 in Walford, near Kerne Bridge.


National Grid has also reported that a total of 130 properties are without power north of Ross-on-Wye, while a further 137 have been hit in the HR2 postcode area of the county. 

There is currently an amber weather warning for wind in place for Herefordshire, with strong winds set to continue overnight and into tomorrow morning (Monday).

An amber warning means there is a good chance of power cuts, which may affect services such as mobile phone coverage.

There may also be damage to buildings, such as tiles being blown from roofs. Journey times will also take longer, with some roads and bridges likely to be closed.
