Clare County Council issues weather alert

ALERTClare County Council has issued a wind and coastal flood warning for the period from Sunday evening through to Tuesday morning.

The local authority said that given the high tides, swell, high seas, and strong gale to storm force winds there is a heightened risk of coastal flooding.

The threat of coastal flooding will peak at times of high tides this evening (Sunday), Monday morning and Monday evening.

Clare County Council is advising the public and those with properties which have previously flooded on the coast to be aware of this risk.

Met Éireann has issued an Orange Weather Alert for a period of very windy weather developing on Sunday night, with some strong and damaging gusts likely.

Met Éireann says: “These strong winds will coincide with high seas, along Atlantic coasts, which may lead to some coastal flooding.  Southwesterly winds will reach mean speeds of 65 to 80 km/h while gusts of 110 to 130 km/h are possible, with exposed coasts and higher ground most at risk. Winds will veer westerly on Monday afternoon and ease on Tuesday morning.”
