STORM Evert has OBLITERATED campsites across the country - with owners now telling holidaymakers to “pack up and go home”.
It comes as three weeks of rain is set to batter Britain today while wind and thunder warnings remain in place.
As newly named Storm Evert gathers pace, winds of up to 75mph are expected to lash the South West, with coastal gales and rain set to affect parts of the country.
The storm will move across parts of the UK, giving a "wet and windy start" to Friday for the southern and central regions, the Met Office said.
Steven Keates, a meteorologist from the Met Office, said: "The wind will get worse before it gets better.
"The highest gust of wind is on the Isles of Scilly, which is 45 knots or 52mph.
"There is the potential for 60mph in coastal areas of west Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
"There is the chance of seeing something a little stronger than that from midnight to 3am, where as per the amber warning, there is the chance of seeing gusts of up to 75mph in one or two very exposed coastal spots, mainly in Cornwall."
