A TORNADO warning has been issued for Cumbria as Storm Isha hits.

Torro - the UK’s Tornado and Storm Research Organisation - issued a ‘red’ warning for possible tornadoes on their website.

Cumbria has been included in the areas that could possibly be hit from Storm Isha later today and tomorrow.

Wind gusts between 80-100 mph, hail to 20mm diameter, cloud-to-ground lightning and tornadoes are all possible, Torro has suggested.

There is also a ‘yellow’ warning for Convective Discussion for much of England, including Cumbria.

This is for isolated tornados, wind gusts between 70-80 mph and hail.
