LONDON - Britain is taking precautions for a storm that is expected to hit the country with heavy rain and hurricane-force winds.
Forecasters say the storm will arrive in the southern half of the U.K. on Sunday, a day of major sports events, including a regular NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London.
Channel 4's Vic Micolucci reported Sunday morning that above-ground train service to the stadium was suspended due to the weather. There was a report that a tree was down on the tracks.
Prime Minister David Cameron told government agencies to ensure that contingency plans are made for transportation, schools and power supplies during the storm, which could have gusts stronger than 80 mph (128 kph).
The storm is expected to move across the country and head out over the North sea by Monday afternoon. Britain's Met Office said it could cause widespread and severe disruption from falling trees, power cuts and flooding.
