I believe everything was ok, the south had it worst.

Did anyone actually notice a storm? I'm in the south west and didn't hear any wind/thunder.

I know a few parks in the SW took various precautions. Brean, for example, ended up dismantling their booster and miami.

The rides at Brean have been set back up and were open yesterday although the park did have to close early due to flooding on park yesterday.

There was no bad weather at Alton Towers - We were anxiously awaiting the news as it looked like it could possibly make it that far north, however it seemed to hit over london - Thorpe Park delayed their opening til around 11.30am.
