Storm Ciara: Waves violently crash in the North Sea as 80mph winds slam Britain - VIDEO 1

Storm Ciara has slammed Britain, unleashing strong winds and heavy rain.

And it is waves in the North Sea which have shown the true extent of the storm.

Footage uploaded from a boat sailing through the body of water has shown the choppy conditions.

Twitter user AndrewGeddes23 uploaded the footage which sees a boat being tossed about on the harsh waves.

The microphone of the camera demonstrates the fierce wind which is blowing on the North Sea, as the water conditions look dangerous. 

And others also took to social media to show the true extent of the storm which has been unleashed on Britain. 

Gethin Jones posted footage to Twitter of the harsh seas which flooded roads in his area, bringing water to his front door on Tremadoc Bay, Criccieth, Gwynedd.

He told PA: “This is quite an exceptional storm and I haven’t seen wind this strong for quite a few years.

“Sea conditions are worse than usual as there’s a spring tide today which means that the tide has come in higher than usual and the strong wind behind it means that the waves are even higher.”

It appears Storm Ciara has caused havoc with bodies of water across the UK.

A river in Dumfries, Scotland burst its banks in the early hours of the morning, sending water flooding into the streets.

The road running parallel to the river has had to be closed because it stil remains submerged in the flood waters.

And a market town in West Yorkshire has also been hit, this time with the eerie sounds of flood sirens.

Hebden Bridge heard sirens wailing at dawn to warn of the impending waters.

Local resident, John McMahon told the Mirror: “This is only the second time in 2.5 years I’ve lived here [that I’ve heard the sirens]. It’s obviously an eerie sound to wake to. 

“For a horrid moment you get a glimpse of the fear felt by people facing genuine catastrophes (natural and man-made) worldwide. Hopefully we won’t be in that bracket here. Just trying to work out how we can help our neighbours.”
