Quote:A new Atlantic storm is set to batter parts of Britain's beleaguered coastline this weekend with huge waves due to bring further devastation to the south west and heavy rain expected to heap even more chaos on to flooded communities.
The weather system is expected to bring up to 30mm of rain overnight tomorrow and into Saturday along with severe gale force winds of up to 80mph which could topple trees and cause more damage to southern Britain.
Experts meanwhile have predicted waves of up to 35ft could batter parts of the Cornish coastline on Saturday - the biggest seen this winter.
Southern UK set for gales and more rain.
Southern parts of the UK are again being hit by rain and strong winds with forecasters warning of gales to come.
The Met Office has issued an amber warning for high winds in south Wales and south-west England, with 60-70 mph coastal gusts and large waves expected.
The warning, which is valid until 06:00 GMT on Sunday, says gusts could reach 80mph in exposed locations.
Coastguards in Devon say they are expecting "phenomenal" waves off shore, possibly reaching 45ft (14m) in height.
The Ministry of Defence has put 1,500 personnel on notice to help in southern England if needed.
On Saturday morning, about 670 homes in the Newbury, Basingstoke, Bournemouth and Salisbury areas were without electricity.
More than 300 homes in Cornwall also had no power.
Worst storm in a couple of decades.
Pray for me.

Met Office: Evidence "suggests climate change link to storms"
Climate change is likely to be a factor in the extreme weather that has hit much of the UK in recent months, the Met Office's chief scientist has said.
Dame Julia Slingo said the variable UK climate meant there was "no definitive answer" to what caused the storms.
"But all the evidence suggests there is a link to climate change," she added.
"There is no evidence to counter the basic premise that a warmer world will lead to more intense daily and hourly rain events."
More than 130 severe flood warnings - indicating a threat to life - have been issued since December. In contrast, there were only nine in the whole of 2012.
More than 5,000 properties have been flooded over this period, although the Environment Agency says investment in flood defences over the past decade has protected a further 1.3 million properties.
Severe gales all night and ongoing here in London. Heavy rain has not stopped for the last 16 hours!
Heavy rainfall of up to an inch forecast, threatening more havoc around already overflowing rivers
Storms are expected to be at least as severe as last week which causes chaos across southern England
The Environment Agency has issued more than 500 flood warnings and alerts, three of which pose 'a danger to life'
The body is facing fresh anger after a senior official hailed its performance during the storms as a 'success story'
Ministry of Defence has put 1,600 personnel on standby to assist in southern England if needed
The Environment Agency say there is a significant risk of further flooding throughout Devon and Cornwall
Flooding has now spread to the Home Counties - Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Hampshire
Calmer conditions and some respite today and tomorrow, but 'deep depression’ is likely early hours of Tuesday
Much of Somerset has been underwater since December and there is more bad weather coming
Records show that England faced the wettest January since 1766
It certainly seems like more rain is about the last thing they need. Actually this weather pattern is quite concerning, I'm not certain if I've ever seen storms of this magnitude roll in anywhere one after another.
