Man Called Storm Denniss Trolled By People Fearing Weekend Weather Chaos

Man Called Storm Denniss Trolled By People Fearing Weekend Weather Chaos

A British bloke who is unfortunately named Storm Denniss is being trolled mercilessly by folk online ahead of 'his' plans to cause weather chaos this weekend.

Yes, after the madness of Storm Ciara damaged property, caused travel disruption, and brought some communities to their knees last weekend, the UK is set to be bashed about by the second storm in as many weeks over the next few days - Storm Dennis.

One unlucky person who happens to have almost the same name as the coming storm has been taking a fair bit of flak online for it.

Storm Denniss has been inundated with as many as 50 messages asking him not to devastate the UK, threatening him against it and even asking him to seek professional help.

Hey, they're the ones trying to reason with the weather. That's problematic behaviour, for sure.

One person wrote: "Alright mate, not being funny but if your [sic] planning on blowing s*** around my town this week you better think twice! FFS Dennis think about it."

A second person said: "Hey storm dennis don't be showing your face at the weekend I don't want to be blown over and be rolling down hill like sonic the hedgehog."

A third pleaded: "Don't be selfish to others go anger management before the weekend I'm begging you."

Luckily, the man behind the name, a 24-year-old furniture maker from Whitby in Yorkshire, can see the funny side.

He explained: "I found it hilarious when the storm was named after me and my family started making jokes about it.

"The next day I started getting random messages from people I've never even heard of.

"They went into my spam folder on Facebook.

"People are definitely messaging me in a light-hearted way and I will get more because the storm has not even started yet."

"I've had loads of messages from people calling me names. I just sit there scrolling through it and find it hilarious.

"I know people aren't being serious and are just having a laugh.

He added: "It's cool to have a storm named after me to be honest. I have joked that I want it to be a storm to remember now it has my name to it.

"I imagine if it does cause damage then it'll only get worse too.

"I am concerned about how much damage it will cause and I do hope it won't be too bad."

Aren't we all, Storm?

If everything goes as predicted, the 1,200 mile wide storm could drop an entire month's worth of rain onto the country within just 24 hours.

After the floods of last weekend, that's a really serious issue.
