Ex Hurricane Ophelia (previously a category 3 hurricane – the most intense storm ever recorded as far east on the globe) is due to hit the south west of Ireland in the next few hours.  It will then sweep across the island leaving the north coast at about 10pm.  High winds will likely continue into Tuesday.

During these hours this storm will be intense, it has been described as a 50 year storm, the Met Office, Irish Weather Authority, both Governemnts have issued advise.  Stay away from the coast, don’t go out unless you have to, stay safe, secure any loose property, be careful of debris trees etc.

Be prepared – have a torch, charge your phone, charge your power banks, have batteries, a battery powered radio, candles… if you have a land line – it may well work without electricity so make sure it is plugged in.  This storm will most likely pass quickly so don’t panic and stay safe.

This advise is sound – don’t be a hero and don’t put our real heroes (the emergency services) in a position where you have to be saved from your own stupidity.
