The Department of Education is informing all schools across County Waterford which is now included in the status red wind alerts to remain closed tomorrow.

Bus Eireann has cancelled school buses tomorrow in areas in which a red warning is in place, while the RSA is warning road users to take extra care.

Advice to the public in relation to the extreme weather:

  • Avoid all unnecessary travel
  • Stay away from coastal areas
  • Road users should pay particular attention to the risk posed by fallen trees and flying debris. In the event of road closures, follow the diversion signage.
  • Given anticipated weather conditions, avoid using bikes
  • Power outages are likely, with contingency planning activated by the ESB.  The ESB is advising the public to stay away from fallen cables that may have broken due to the high winds. ESB Emergency Services can be contacted at 1850 372 999.
  • Remove patio furniture, rubbish bins and any loose items from around buildings – these can be turned into missiles by the wind.
  • If possible, check in on isolated and vulnerable neighbours today in advance of the oncoming severe weather conditions and again after the worst of the event has passed.
