Malaysians well prepared for St Jude storm

PETALING JAYA - Malaysians in the United Kingdom on Monday night seemed prepared for the St Jude storm.

Zharif Razain tweeted a picture of a fallen fence, joking that this was how he got to know his neighbours "the nature-al way."

Nadiea Afiqah said the winds were so strong she fell "and nearly got hit by a car."

SJ Lau, who lives in Birmingham, said that as at 9.45pm Malaysian time he and friends were "still waiting for the storm here at West Midlands."

Alicia Izharuddin, based in Oxford, said a few bicycles had fallen down near where she lived.

"It was annoying but I can manage."

If you are a Malaysian living in the area affected by the storm, you can e-mail us your experience and pictures at or post them via twitter @thestaronline.

Severe gale-force winds have prompted travel warnings issued by the authorities and transport companies, advising travellers to check schedules of trains and flights regularly.

The storm, known as St Jude and the worst in a decade, is reportedly bringing the wind at speeds of over 100 miles per hour and is currently heading towards Denmark and Germany.
