Severe flooding causes evacuation of dozens of homes in Laois


Dozens of homes had to be evacuated in the town of Mountmellick, Co. Laois, after a local river burst its banks in heavy rain and flooded nearby housing estates.

The town is essentially cut off at the moment, as all access roads are impassable.

A rainfall warning expired at 9pm this evening. Cold temperatures are expected to hamper rescue efforts overnight.
