We’ve missed the worst of it in Cork.
An extended Status Red weather alert closed schools and canceled buses this morning in Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Louth, Meath, Wicklow, Offaly, Westmeath as Storm Debi swept the country.
It’s not over yet however; a Status Yellow – Wind & Rain warning is in place for Ireland, with Met Éireann predicting “very windy or stormy” conditions on Monday, “accompanied by heavy rain with a chance of embedded thunderstorms and hail”.
Seems to be very calm in Cork City odd wheelie bin turned over very mild too #Cork
