BRITS are bracing for a third day of killer Storm Babet chaos after three died and a plane skidded off the runway on Friday.
Torrential rain and strong winds will continue to batter the country today with the Met Office warning there is still a danger to life.
A red weather alert has been issued for Scotland up until midnight on Saturday as “very heavy rainfall is expected to lead to further severe flooding and disruption”.
According to the Met Office, a loss of power is expected along with extensive flooding and collapsed or damaged buildings.
Dangerous driving conditions are also predicted while public transport could be impacted too.
More than a hundred passengers were stranded – with emergency services, including three ambulances, racing out to the Boeing 737-800 after it landed in strong winds at 1.53pm.
West Mercia Police yesterday sadly confirmed a man, in his 60s, was the third person to die in the storm.
He was found two hours after getting caught in fast-flowing flood water and being dragged under in Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire.
Witnesses reported the tragedy to cops around 10.40am on Friday before the discovery was sadly made.
And in more terrifying scenes that shocked the nation, school kids were left panicked when flood water took over their bus.
Pupils were on their way home from school in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, when the carnage unfolded.
