Naga Munchetty, 47, admitted to her 278,900 Twitter followers that she was feeling “slightly scared” in the midst of the stormy weather Britain experienced over the weekend. The storms caused the Met office to issue a yellow weather warning for much of England and parts of Wales.

Naga posed a question to her followers on Sunday evening, as she braced herself for the severe conditions. 

The BBC Breakfast star wrote: “Anyone else slightly scared in this stormy weather?”

Her question appeared to divide opinion, with people taking to the comments section to share their thoughts. 

Not everyone was in agreement, with Fiona quipping: “Living in the Inner Hebrides, I don’t really worry until I see sheep flying past the window!”

“Oh dear I hope the lightning hasn’t scorched your grass! That’s BBQ weather in Scotland!” David joked. (sic)

While BBC’s meteorologist Matt Taylor wrote: “I know someone who may have spent the last half hour at the window watching it all…”

“It’s amazing to watch I agree. So much [lightning emoji],” Naga replied. (sic)

“No I love it (as long as I’m inside),” Grace added, while Sandra penned, “Nope not scared at all the saying I was brought up with was when it thundered I was told it was god rearranging his furniture upstairs.” (sic)

Luke reasoned: “Not scared, I find storms help me get to sleep. It is comfortable being nice and warm as it howls outside. 

“Though there is nothing wrong with being scared as everyone is different.”

While Michael shared: “Growing up in the Caribbean, I have lived through hurricanes. 

“While this is minor in comparison, it’s important to treat the weather with respect, naturally.

“Thunder or lightning by itself is okay. When they occur at the same time, that’s when we need to be alert.”

Alby added: “I drove through torrential rain, wild winds and constant lightning for about 10 minutes. Terrifying. 

“And then drove past an open air golf range trying to ply its trade!”

“Yes last night just closing my door and bang , I nearly fell over,” Bill admitted. (sic) 

The storm on Sunday caused fires, fallen trees and flooding particularly affecting the East of England. 

These incidents included lightning causing a roof fire in Suffolk, flooding in Peterborough and reports of fallen trees across Hertfordshire.
