Enormous waves are churning across the North Atlantic as Britain braces for a second straight weekend of wild winter weather and flooding.

Hurricane-force winds up to 80 knots (92 mph) and monster waves that could reach over 100 feet (30 meters) high were roaring across North Atlantic. That was the report Saturday from the U.S. National Weather Service’s Ocean Prediction Center.

Heavy rain and strong winds were moving across Britain and hitting parts of the country that were flooded when rivers burst their banks last weekend.

The storm, dubbed Dennis, is already causing widespread travel disruptions, with airlines cancelling hundreds of flights.
