Gales and high tides sweep the coast at Blackpool, in the north west of England, as the remnants of Hurricane Katia hit British shores, Monday Sept. 12, 2011. The second stage of the Tour of Britain was cancelled for safety reasons due to high winds across Monday's competition route. Britain's weather agency says the tail end of former Hurricane Katia could bring the worst storms to hit the country in 15 years. Britain's Met Office said post Tropical Storm Katia was hitting parts of Northern Ireland, North Wales, Northern England and parts of Scotland on Monday. It said the storms could be the worst to hit Britain since 1996 when the aftermath of Hurricane Lili brought winds of 90 mph (145 kph) to the country.
