Downside risks to economy
Jakarta expects the economy to grow by 5.2 per cent this year and 5.3 per cent next year, given external pressures. It sees the unemployment rate dropping to 3.9 percent in 2018 and to 3.5 percent in 2019.

"Now we've already got the rain and the gusty winds coming in from the west, gusts currently about 50-60 miles per hour". "Elsewhere, however, the winds should remain below warning thresholds". Further strong winds may bring down leaves and branches, increasing the likelihood of flooding due to blocked drains or culverts. Expect the unexpected. Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road.

Pembrokeshire County Council is working with multi-agency partners to monitor the situation.

Director Stephen Stewart said: "Even though power cuts are rare, during times of heavy rain and flooding they become more likely".

Already there are delays and cancellations to train and bus services.

"There is also a risk that the high winds associated with Storm Callum, combined with high tides, may lead to some coastal impacts due to large waves".
