Over the last two days there have been three earthquakes recorded by the British Geological Survey with an epicenter just off the south end of Arran Roughly halfway been Arran and Ailsa Craig. In 50 days there have been 7 earthquakes recorded on or near Arran. The quakes earlier in the month were minute, these […]
Early on Thursday morning (03:42:20 BST Thu, 15-May-14 to be precise) the British Geological Survey recorded an earthquake on the south end of the Isle of Arran which measured 1.2 on the Richter scale. At magnitude 1.2 it’s very unlikely that anyone would actually feel it. There are millions of these sized quakes, classed as […]
Thursday the 27th of February saw the best Aurora display I have ever seen, I was just about overhead, full of colour, and easily seen by the naked eye.
More coastal “overtopping” today, and another 3.5m height tide, with southerly winds and low pressure lead to an extra high tide. SEPA issued a flood warning for Cordon, but there are other areas that get flooded too. One of which is the low section of road in Sannox. It was passable but do you really […]
Todays hefty southerly wind and a very high tide caused by the New Moon has lead to some pretty chopping conditions out at sea. Here’s a selection of photos from around Sannox at lunchtime today. Don’t be fooled, when you see waves crashing over jetties like that, stay clear. They look white and fluffy but […]
Don’t really need words, but I did have to de-saturate the colours! I missed the huge perfect rainbow and the mammatus clouds, but once again the Arran Weather had everyone getting their cameras out in amazement at natures artwork
Just as SEPA warned, the storm surge came and produced some dramatic coastal flooding. It still wasn’t as high as 23 years ago! Theres been lots of debris left on the roads and in some areas the roadside has collapsed.
This March saw the biggest snow event on Arran for decades. Whole villages were cut off for days. No mains power on the island for well over a week. SSE and Aggreko mobilised every single one of the 25,000kg generators north of the M25 onto the isle of arran to provide a temporary power supply. […]
At 1am on the 19th of December the storm surge came into Sannox, the deer looked bewildered! SEPA had issued a warning for this storm surge.
It hasn’t been the most Festive of weather for this Christmas but I hope everyone managed to enjoy their Christmas time and it’s now almost time to look ahead to 2014 and see what that will bring.
