The wind thankfully is not causing at problem at the airport, although it’s very strong it’s blowing straight down the runway, and not across it, so planes are able to land.
The wind however is causing problems with falling trees and branches, there have been many reports over the island.
The leading image is of branches falling in the Pena area of Funchal, giving worry to drivers in that area.
Also the main entrance of Jamie Moniz school has been closed when a student was hit by a falling branch.
If you have fallen trees or branches in your area, let us know in the comments.
