Clare County Council’s Severe Weather Awareness Team is meeting this afternoon to put plans in place as Hurricane Lorenzo approaches Ireland.

There’s still uncertainty surrounding the exact track of the hurricane, but by the time it reaches us, it’s predicted to have weakened to a tropical storm.

Met Éireann says it’s on standby to issue a status orange weather warning for certain areas.


Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy will also convene a meeting of the National Emergency Co-Ordination group this afternoon and the ESB, Gardaí and public transport operators have been told to be ready to activate their crisis management plans.
