At 01:00 on Monday 10th March, Britain's worst storm for 25 years
hit Dyfed, with winds up to 82 mph and
causing untold disruption and distress. The winds decimated the area
causing approximately £30 worth of damage. Several priceless
collections of mementoes from Llanelli were damaged beyond repair.
* Residents of Burry Port and neighbouring Pembrey and Kidwelly were
woken well before their giros arrived
* Several priceless hedges were damaged
* Three areas of historically and scientifically significant litter
Local radio stations reported thousands of people wandering confused
and bewildered among the debris, trying to come to terms with the
fact that something interesting has happened in Dyfed.
One Dyfed resident, Ashleigh-Marie Dutton, a 17 year old mother-of-
three said "It was such a shock, little Chardonnay came running into
my bedroom crying. My youngest two, Tyson-Morgan and Aguilera-Amy
slept through it. I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha and
Kilroy later that morning." Apparently though, looting did carry on
as normal. The British Red Cross have so far managed to ship 800
crates of Sunny Delight to the area to help the stricken masses.
Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found
large quantities of personal belongings including Benefit Books and
jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos and bone china from Poundland.
