Emergency crews are on standby in Hounslow to deal with any wreckage caused by the storm battering the UK.
Heavy rain and winds of more than 60mph are forecast by the Met Office to hit the borough this evening (Monday, December 23) and tomorrow morning.
Hounslow Highways, the council's road repairs and maintenance contractor, has emergency crews ready to deal with any damage.
Two chainsaw crews and two grab-lift crews are among the team on standby and its emergency response unit will also be manned throughout the period.
Hounslow Highways has already removed traffic barriers in place for impending roadworks and secured barriers at sites where this has not been possible.
Additional road maintenance and cleaning staff are ready for an 'extensive' clean-up operation from tomorrow morning.
Hounslow Highways service director Rob Gillespie said: "It is standard practice for us to prepare for the worst in such scenarios but we know that the preparation and planning of our teams means that we are in strong position to minimise the impact residents and the network should something happen."
Two people were killed in a gas explosion in Hounslow believed to have been caused by a falling tree when the St Jude storm hit the UK in October this year.
