Galway braces for flooding as Storm Callum clashes with high tides

Galway braces for flooding as Storm Callum clashes with high tides

At 7pm, they issued three separate Orange Wind warnings for various counties across Ireland.

Storm Callum is expected to bring torrential rain and winds of up to 70 miles per hour to parts of the United Kingdom on Friday.

Storm Callum is expected in the coming days.

The yellow warning runs from 05:00 BST on Friday until midnight on Saturday and the amber warning from 06:00 on Friday until 18:00 on Saturday.

While she lacks significant statewide name recognition, she said she will seriously consider running for the position. And I think he reacted with anger and anguish as a father of two young girls, a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old".

Strong winds at this time of year can increase the rate of leaf fall which can potentially block drains or culverts and, with the heavy rainfall expected over Friday and Saturday, could well heighten the potential for flooding.

The Met Office said there is the chance of injuries and a danger to life from flying debris. Winds will be strongest overnight and early tomorrow, gusting between 110kph and 130kph on the coasts. There is the risk of localised flooding, tricky conditions on the roads with surface water and spray.

Cllr John Campbell says areas of South Donegal which have been prone to flooding in the past owing to high tides could still be vulnerable. "Road users should also be aware of the risk of their vehicles aquaplaning on standing water".

"The track of this storm is a bit further north than Storm Ali, so therefore Callum shouldn't be as damaging as Ali was in central parts of the country". The worst of the winds will impact on Friday morning rush hour, people will be travelling in Scotland for October holidays.

Limerick City and County Council is monitoring the situation very closely and liaising with Met Éireann and the National Emergency Co-ordination Group.

The county council is urging motorists to avoid all coastal roads, and to only make essential journeys.

The storm is set to blow in from the Atlantic and will hit the United Kingdom just hours before Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tie the knot at Windsor Castle on Friday morning. A spell of heavy rain will accompany the winds.
