First of all I did not create the title. I'm a title thief :-)
Anyway apparently were all going to die in a horrible Hurricane.

"After battling through one storm that caused flooding in some parts of the country, Britain can now look forward to a hurricane coming our way next week.Hurricane Gonzalo is currently battering Bermuda, and looks set to travel across the Atlantic and wreak havoc on the shores of the UK next week."

The rest of the article is here.

As an avid weather fan i've been watching Gonzalo with glee as it became the strongest Atlantic hurricane since Igor 2010 (sadly it's now weakening slowly though Bermuda will still suffer catastrophic damage). I can safely say however that Gonzalo will be extra-tropical by the time it reaches the north west of the UK. Western coasts exposed may find it a bit windier than normal for mid-October but nobody else will really notice it as anything unusual.

Here is Gonzalo currently and Gonzalo close to peak for those who want to see weather porn (Bermuda about the size of the eye)..

Nah.

Western and southern channel coastal areas will be a tad windy and there will be rain for a time, with a heavy band pushing south west but will move through quite quickly. Expect the system Monday night onwards and passing through by Tuesday early evening.

Those coastal and exposed western and southern areas may see winds of around 35 kts gusting to perhaps 45 kts, inland areas 20 - 25 knts and up to 25mm to 30mm of rain over 3 to 6 hours.

Feeling cooler than of late with highs expected around 13/15C widespread, perhaps 8/10C in the far north west and 15/17C far south west.

Typically autumnal - which is only to be expected at this time of year.

Bermuda now getting hit, 1 minute sustained winds in the eyewall (should be with Bermuda in the next 3-6 hours i think) are around 125mph.

Bermuda now reporting hurricane force sustained winds (the sound on the cam is pretty amazing) with more to come, gusts are now exceeding 106mph.

Over 2000 people now without power already..

Forum reports suggest storm surge over the open ocean is reaching 40 feet, sea on cam below now looks to breaching. Looks like some of the trees are starting to struggle too.

Incredible footage (live webcam stream - fracking love hurricanes!)..

Eye is around 55 miles so no chance of escape now, as close to a direct major hurricane hit as you can get, solid category 3.

Anybody want to take bets on whether this welcome center will be there tomorrow?

Something most people forget is that tornados can also be an issue..

Gonzalo is a better name than Katrina.
