Clare County Council is urging land, home and business owners in flood prone coastal locations to remain vigilant over the next 48 hours due to a heightened risk of coastal and tidal flooding.
People in coastal areas of County Clare which have flooded in the past should take note that, due to high winds, very high waves and associated tidal surges, there is a high risk of coastal flooding in such areas from this evening (Tuesday 9th December) to Thursday morning (11th December), in particular at times of high tides.
The public are strongly advised not to venture out in these areas during this period for their own safety and to note warnings from Met Eireann.
Meanwhile, Met Eireann has a Orange Wind Alert in place for Clare.
Southerly winds, veering westerly will reach mean speeds of 45 to 65 km/hr with gusts of 70 to 100 km/hr today and early tonight. Becoming very windy or stormy from midnight onwards with westerly winds reaching mean speeds of 50 to 70 km/hr and gusting to speeds of 100 to 130 km/hr.
