Malta is expected to be hit by strong winds almost all through Saturday, weather websites are reporting, although the strength of the phenomenon in varying. The Malta Meteorological Office is forecasting winds up to Force 7, but the Gozo Weather Page on Facebook is saying that the force of the wind could be even higher, possibly reaching Force 10 between 9am and 3pm, before losing some of its force later in the day. Winds of this speed may blow over small trees, billboards, barricades, temporary structures and any other light objects. Slight structural damage and the uprooting of trees may occur in the strongest of gusts. People are being urged to secure all loose objects, securely fasten doors and windows mainly those on the windward side and park vehicles away from weak buildings, trees, walls and fences. The sea will be rough to very rough. … [Read more...] about Strong wind warning for most of Saturday
