Fears a second devastating storm could blast Cornwall this weekend
FEARS are rising that a second huge storm brewing off the coast of Cornwall could once again cause widespread damage and flooding.
The storm is currently making its way across the Atlantic and will hit the Cornish coast on Friday and Saturday.
It will bring with it monster 32 foot waves that are predicted to blast into Sennen in west Cornwall, with swells of over 28 foot.
A spokesperson from the Met Office said winds ranging from 40mph – 50mph (gale force) will sweep across Cornwall with 40mm of rainfall forecast.

On Saturday, huge storm surges are predicted at Perranporth with tides of 7.7 metres, similar to the ‘Hercules’ storm earlier this month that devastated Cornwall.
A spokesman from Falmouth Coastguard said: “During these storms it is essential to keep yourself safe. Do not take any unnecessary risks or put yourself in danger. The sea is a very dangerous place, keep off harbour walls and rocks.”
The Watering Hole, on Perranporth's beach, warned its customers of severe weather this weekend, via its twitter page.
Earlier this month the Cornish coastline was changed forever when the Hercules storm left a trail of destruction in its wake.
The stone arch at Porthcothan Bay collapsed after it was battered by 30 foot waves.
