First British Storm Ever Named Slams Into Scotland

The first hurricane-style storm ever named by the British weather agency, Abigail, hit Scotland on Thursday night.

The storm threatens to unleash an entire month's rainfall in just 48 hours. 
Abigail struck earlier than Britain's Met Office had predicted, closing schools, shutting ferry services and canceling flights. 
Flood warnings were issued in Scotland and the Northern Isles. But heavier-than usual rain was forecast across Britain south to Wales.
