    Well, this year I think it has been mainly the North westerners

    The SouthEast and London usually do quite well,but they have not had many this year.

    The NorthEast I think has had a couple,but they don't experience many storms at all.

    Somerset in the SouthWest did quite well through early Summer.

    Plymouth used to be really good for storms,but not many this year.

    Scotland and Northern Ireland have had a few.

    Lincolnshire is meant to be the storm capital of England and not had many except for today I think.

    Here in Gloucestershire it's been pretty poor.

    Worcesterhire does quite well,for those who live near the Malverns.

    Now please correct me if I have any of these wrong and whether I have left anybody out.

    So The question is who and where has had the best storms this year?

    Erm, i was gonna go with the favorite Lincolnshire, but i think Nolfolk

    and Northern Ireland into NW England /Scotland may have done slightly better.

    An island in the middle of the North sea would have got my vote if it exsited!!

    Definitely not here, Ive only heard a couple rumbles this year.

    I'd say the further Southeast you go, also any mountainous or hilly areas.

    I've done pretty well for storms this year, with 10 down here. It seems Norwich and the Norfolk area has done the extremely well, possibly the best in my opinion.
