Storm Jocelyn expected to wreak havoc around the country as Status Yellow wind warning is put in place




Ireland is set to face more severe and damaging winds as Storm Jocelyn moves across the country later today, reports RTE.

This will cause more problems for the 45,000 customers who are still without power following Storm Isha.

However, ESB Networks has restored power to over 190,000 premises since yesterday’s peak outages of over 235,000.

Most of the outages are in the northwest, where Uisce √Čireann has reported around 39,000 customers are currently without water, reports RTE.

A Status Yellow wind warning is in place for Clare, Kerry, Galway and Mayo until 2am tomorrow.

Another Status Yellow wind warning for Donegal, Leitrim, and Sligo is also now in effect until 5am tomorrow, with very strong and gusty southwest-to-west winds forecasted.

Later this evening, two Status Orange wind warnings for Donegal, Mayo, and Galway will come into effect.

Met √Čireann meteorologist Aoife Kealy has advised people to be careful as Storm Jocelyn may worsen damage to structures that have already been affected by Storm Isha, reports RTE.
