Three die as Storm Ophelia batters Ireland

Three die as Storm Ophelia batters Ireland

Ophelia has claimed another life, this time in Cahir, Co Tipperary.

It was the worst storm to hit Ireland since the 1960s and you would have hoped for at least a period of calm weather.

A man in his early 30s has died after being injured by a chainsaw while clearing a fallen tree brought down by Storm Ophelia in Co.

Sadly, in County Waterford, one woman has died after a tree fell on a vehicle.

By late afternoon, approximately 360,000 electricity customers were without power as a result of over 3,200 individual faults on the network across the country.

Meanwhile, schools on both sides of the Irish border will remain closed for a second day as authorities begin to assess the damage.

It said the gale-force storm had caused power cuts for customers predominantly in Northumberland, County Durham and North Yorkshire.

He said: 'The strong winds will continue but should moderate a little bit compared to what we have seen.

Mr Keates said: "Whereas this morning the air mass was coming up from the south, picking up the smoke from Portuguese wild fires and Saharan dust, now the wind is coming in from the west".

Temperatures are also expected to be cooler, after a warm 23.5C (74F) was recorded in Kent on Monday.
