Severe storms in Scotland disrupt populated areas

LONDON - Severe storms and high winds caused widespread disruption to parts of Scotland on Thursday, leaving thousands without power, causing roads and schools to close and hitting air travel.
The Met office issued a red alert warning, after winds of up to 150 mph were recorded on Thursday.
"It is not usual to have this type of weather hitting the northern parts of Scotland, but these storms have moved to affect more densely populated areas," a spokesman at the Met Office said.
