One positive (?) consequence of the storm: https://www.independent.co.uk/trave...-atlantic-winds-british-airways-a9325396.html "A British Airways flight has likely broken the fastest-ever subsonic New York to London crossing time after reaching speeds of more than 800mph....... Passenger plane records over the Atlantic tumbled overnight on Saturday and Sunday as Storm Ciara hurtled towards Britain on the back of a 200mph jet stream....... According to Flightradar24, an online flight tracking service, a British Airways Boeing 747 departing JFK airport on Saturday reached Heathrow in 4 hours 56 minutes shortly after 11.20pm. It was just a minute faster than a Virgin Atlantic Airbus A350 flight which landed at Heathrow moments later, and three minutes quicker than another Virgin plane which arrived at 5.12am this morning." Note that the ground speed of 800 mph is apparently faster than sound, but to break the sound barrier the plane needs to go more than about 770 mph relative to the air. The plane in question was likely going less than about 600 mph relative to the air.
