Lets hope we never do Jo, but we all live on the same planet just because we have never seen this doesn't mean it will never happen here. We have seen some funny weather patterns.

It couldn't happen here because it is fuelled by heat rising from warm oceans. We don't live close enough to warm water to get the full force.
We do get the tail end of these things though, and as mild as they may be they cause enough worry and damage to show how lucky we are to live in a temperate climate.

But as global warming increases, presumably the effects for the UK will get worse
