Same happened to me during the 2nd hurricane in the UK, travelling down from Glasgow on the Shuttle, arrived at Heathrow in the teeth of the hurricane, en route plane was rolling all over the place, passengers crying, smell of vomit etc...on approach pilot aborted landing as we rocked and rolled
Came over the intercom and apologised and said that if it was any consolation the 'chap in front didnt make it either'
2nd approach it felt as if he'd dropped it from on high! Plane had difficulty taxiing.
Met driver and he started to take motorway back home (lived in Hants at the time)...motorway largely empty....when part of a corrigated shed blew across our path decided to leave motorway! Journey took 5 hrs, normally 1 hr, trees down and God knows what!
We lived down a leafy lane and driver had to drop me off trees down etc, clambered over trees down lane and could hear the welcoming sound of the generator (during the first hurricane we were without electricity for 2 wks and wife cooked on open fire and small barbecue. Key supplies ran out in hours ...eerie silence only the noise of chain saws, no radio/tv comms for a while ....learned the lesson and we were fully equipped the second time)
Left family 3 days later to go to Houston
Sorry guys, more of memory lane http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-39070486
